DRU – Domino’s Robotic Unit
Domino’s Pizza unveiled DRU. DRU – Domino’s Robotic Unit, the world’s first autonomous pizza delivery vehicle.
DRU is a four wheeled vehicle with compartments built to keep the customer’s order piping hot and drinks cold while traveling on the footpath at a safe speed from the store to the customer’s door. DRU is currently able to navigate from a starting point to his destination, selecting the best path of travel. His on-board sensors enable him to perceive obstacles along the way and avoid them if necessary.
Domino confirmed that the prototype came from within their internal innovation sessions and has been developed within Domino’s own DLAB. Domino’s collaborated with Australian startup Marathon Robotics on the project.
