Starting off in New Zealand, Domino has announced that they'll be trialling robotic pizza delivery, an autonomous system that will deliver up to 10 pizzas in a radius of 20 miles.

Known as DRU (Domino's Robotic Unit), the four-wheel robot was developed in Australia and is capable of completing deliveries within a 20-mile radius on a single charge. DRU stands at just under three-feet tall, and uses an array of sensors to avoid obstacles. Up to 10 pizzas can be stored in the bot's heated compartment, which can be unlocked with a code that customers are given when they order.
