In the future, robots will deliver our food. Domino’s is one of many companies exploring this idea. The DRU, Domino’s Robotic Unit, is an autonomous delivery vehicle with 4 wheels and compartments to deliver foods and drinks. It can navigate from the starting point to its destination while staying out of trouble using sensors.
When customers order a pizza, the robot travels to their address to make a delivery. It has a cloud-based camera to deter theft. DRU is expected to have a max speed of 20 km/h. The idea sounds exciting, but there are still many challenges ahead.
