Continental AG showcased a new driverless vehicle with delivery robot dogs this week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, TechCrunch reports.

The Continental Urban Mobility Experience, or CUbE, will be able to drive on streets by itself and arrive outside a person's doorstep, the company said in a press release.

Delivery robot dogs will then be deployed from the vehicle for the last step of the process, according to the press release. The delivery robots will be able to run up to a person's doorstep to deliver their package.
