The Herald reports:
Domino’s says it’s working with the Government on a plan to permit robot pizza delivery to hungry New Zealanders.
The government and Domino’s Pizza are working to explore and test driverless pizza delivery options with a four-wheeled unit named DRU (Domino’s Robotic Unit).
Minister of Transport Simon Bridges said the use of the robot is an exciting opportunity for New Zealand, which is one of the first countries in the world being considered for testing autonomous pizza delivery.
“DRU is an early prototype, but the fact that New Zealand is being considered as a test site shows we have the right settings to attract innovation.”
New technology and encouraging innovation is a government priority, Bridges said.
“Over the last 12 months I’ve been actively and aggressively promoting New Zealand as a test bed for new transport technology trials. Our enabling laws and regulation means we have the ideal environment to trial all forms of technology,” he said.
Sounds great to me.
