Self-driving delivery cars hitting the streets

NBC -

Domino's pizza and Ford are teaming up to deliver pizza in self-driving cars. 

In the next coming weeks, customers about 45 minutes outside of Detroit, Michigan, will have the option to have their pizza delivered by a Ford Fusion Autonomous Research Vehicle. The customers will also be able to track their order on the Domino's app, and will have a secret code to unlock the "heatwave compartment," which is what keeps the pizza warm in the car. 

The car will be equipped with screen and speakers on the car's exterior so customers can communicate that way as well. 

The car will still have a human inside, for now, as the company studies how customers interact with self-driving cars.
