Pizza chain Dominos has announced the launch of a driverless pizza delivery service in Houston as a test pilot program, according to a report by CNBC.

Dominos said Monday that autonomous cars made by robotics company Nuro will start the delivery service this week. Both companies announced their partnership in 2019, with Dominos launching research on how their customers will react to their pizza being delivered by an autonomous car. 

Houston customers taking part in the pilot program in the Woodland Heights neighborhood can do a prepaid order on the company’s website. These customers will be able to choose, according to CNBC, if they want to have Nuro’s R2 to drop off their pizza. If so, they’ll be able to enter a unique pin code that allows doors to open once the robot arrives to get their pizza.
