Ford has teamed up with Domino’s Pizza to test automated delivery of pizzas, the Detroit News reports.
Customers who participate in the test will get a text message telling them that their pizza is ready.

From there, they’ll come out to the curb and punch the last four digits of their phone number into a touchscreen mounted in the rear passenger door. “The window rolls down and the customer grabs their order from a warming oven just inside the window,” according to the Detroit News.

This isn’t a fully self-driving car, although it will have a full complement of self-driving sensors, including a lidar on the roof.

There will be a driver hidden behind tinted windows in the driver’s seat.
