Ford’s Self-driving Vans Are Now Delivering Food In Miami

In Miami US, customers can now place their order with any of 70 participating businesses including restaurants and shopping malls.

On a normal day, a delivery worker rings your doorbell and the goods you’ve ordered are handed over to you.

But how will a self-driving van without an human intervention deliver a good?

To deliver it to customers, an access code is entered by the Postmate’s employee and the ordered items are placed inside a locker at the back or beside the van.

When the self-driving van arrives at the destination ,the customer gets a text message to alert him/her.

To retrieve the goods,the secret code will then be imputed to open the locker.

Ford says “Ultimately, we are testing how businesses and consumers interact with a self-driving vehicle” and that they will deploy a fully self-driving delivery service by 2021.
