Ford and Postmates team up to deliver orders with self-driving cars

From Engadget - January 9, 2018

This is not the first delivery test for Ford though. Last year, it began using an autonomous Ford Fusion to deliver Domino's orders in Ann Arbor, Michigan. With this new partnership with Postmates, Ford says it could not only change consumer experiences but also allow retailers to expand their customer base. "The way commerce is moving around in cities is dramatically changing, and emerging technology will undoubtedly have an impact on the future of on-demand delivery," Ford said in a Medium post. "With the knowledge we will gain from our partnership with Postmates, we anticipate we will be able to better deploy self-driving technology in a way that can help people get what they need faster, while also supporting local businesses that are a big part of communities around the world."
