HOUSTON, Tx — People in Houston may notice something a little different about their pizza delivery options this week.

Domino's Pizza will start delivering pizzas via Nuro driver-less cars as part of a pilot program, the company announced on April 12, 2021. The company says “select customers” in Houston who make a prepaid delivery order from its store in the Woodland Heights neighborhood during certain dates and times can have their pizza brought to them by a Nuro R2 robot.

It's a completely autonomous on-road delivery vehicle, which means no driver will greet you at the door with your order. When the robot car arrives at the destination, the customer will receive a special pin to retrieve their order from the vehicle.
