Robots are coming for our pizza!
Toyota announced their new concept autonomous car, the e-Palette, at the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
One of the first partnerships with the e-Palette is a partnership with Pizza Hut and an autonomous Pizza-oven-on-wheels.
Pizza Hut is hoping the self-driving car can be used to both deliver AND COOK your pizza by 2020.
“We are focused on technology-based solutions that enable our team members and drivers to deliver even better customer experiences,” Pizza Hut US president Artie Starrs said in a statement. “With Toyota, we are excited to be partnering with an undisputed leader in human mobility with a reputation for innovation, reliability and efficiency, as we define the pizza delivery experience of the future.”
