About a week ago Google Announces they have played around with a self driving car. So this is my vision of how you would order pizza using this technology.
The Car i vision. Crappy picture i drew in paint.
We all know pizza sucks unless its Delivery. So the ordering process would be.
1. Call or visit the web like you would today. You would have to give your phone number also.
2. The pizza place makes your order and loads your order.
3. They send the car off to your location you told them when ordering.
4. The car goes to your location and you pay then get your order.
5. The car goes back to pizza shop.
So when after your order is done being made, on the computer that they put your order in via phone or you via web they pick a car, So say Car Id 7 is available. The computer loads the order information, The list of your order and price. They open the handle on the slot and put the pizza in and close it. It then locks it. They then back away and after it detects no one is close to it, it then starts driving to the house or place of business of the customer.
Then when the car gets to your location the car will then alert the pizza company computer system the car is at your location, how long it drove and triggers a phone call. It then keeps calling every 1 minutes up to 10 times and then leaves if you don’t pick up. Then once you pick up, it then adds 10 minutes to the timer. Once 10 min is up, it calls you and if you pick up it adds 10 more else if leaves. Once you get to it. The car will say your name (Jane Doe in this case and the price.) You pay it via credit card or put money in similar to how you would with a soda vending machine. You open the handle and take your order out. It also prints a receipt or maybe they could put it on the box. Once you close the door on the pizza vendor built-in to the side of the car, The car drives back to the pizza place after it detects if safe to do so. Also these cars would not have to be full size. Could be built-in to a smaller 2 door car.
Then maybe they can come up with a way to make pizza by robots and load them on the car. Then maybe we can have 24/7/365¼ Pizza ordering!
