Robotics startup Nuro has announced plans to dispatch robots this fall to deliver Domino's pizzas to customers in Houston, following deployment of autonomous grocery deliveries in Houston and Phoenix.

Nuro's Kevin Vasconi said the unmanned electric delivery robots "are specially designed to optimize the food delivery experience, which makes them a valuable partner in our autonomous vehicle journey."

Once Domino's customers in Houston place an order, they can track the driverless robot through the Domino's app. When the vehicle reaches the site location, customers can use a PIN code provided by the pizza chain to unlock the vehicle's compartment and obtain their order.
