It's OK to beat your wife if she's drunk


https://www.technologyreview.com/s/...ivery-vehicles/

quote:

Last summer, Ford worked with Domino's Pizza on a test in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where it delivered pizza to randomly chosen customers in a self-driving Ford Fusion hybrid. An operator was inside the car, and a regular human-driven car trailed behind, videotaping the drive. Customers had to approach the car and enter a number on a touch screen on the side of the vehicle to get their pizza. Speaking at CES, the annual consumer electronics show, in Las Vegas this week, Jim Farley, Ford'(TM)s executive vice president, acknowledged that the idea sounds silly, "but we learned so freaking much," he said. Apparently, most people say "thank you" to the car after getting their pizza.

You mean I need to go outside to get my food? This is troubling.

Yeah the next step would be a self-driving car pulling up to your house and then dispersing a separate robot to come to your door

I wonder if they'd arm it to prevent theft

Alternately they could use some sort of catapult system to fire the pizza at your front door.
