Ford and Domino's driverless delivery

PICTURE the scene.

You’re starving hungry and hesitantly reach for the takeaway menu lurking at the bottom of the messy draw next to the sink.

You know you are going instantly regret this decision having consumed said Meat Feast.

Prior to that you have to endure the annoyance of a congealed formerly hot pizza being delivered by an unshaven neanderthal who looks like he’s just murdered his grandmother.

And then expects to be tipped for producing this once edible Italian cardboard tasting artery blocker.

But those days could well be over thanks to Ford and Domino’s with driverless delivery.

Over the next few weeks across Ann Arbor in Michigan, in America, randomly selected Domino’s customers will get the opportunity to have their order serviced via a Ford Fusion Hybrid Autonomous Research Vehicle.

For now the car will have a Ford safety engineer on board along with a few researchers, too.

At this stage they have promised not to scoff your pizza.

However, customers can even track the car through GPS on the Domino’s app, and receive texts when the car is near, along with instructions on how to retrieve their food.

Domino’s president Patrick Doyle said: “As delivery experts, we’ve been watching the development of self-driving vehicles with great interest.”

Even the Mayor of Ann Arbor is excited (clearly wanting a freebie), gushing: “While it’s pizza delivery today, my hope is that collaborations such as this will enable even more innovations tomorrow.”

The bad news?

Now I want a pizza for dinner.
