Uber Eyes To Deliver Foods Using Drones
The ride-hailing giant Uber is now planning to deliver foods using drones to speed-up restaurant meal delivery.
Uber Eats said that the company had already a regulatory approval to start testing drones for food delivery in San Diego, California.
At its Uber Elevate Summit, Luke Fischer, head of flight operations said that the ride-hailing firm wants to provide more options for their clients.
“Our goal is to expand Uber Eats drone delivery so we can provide more options to more people at the tap of a button,” Fischer said.
The drones will just bring the food to a safe-drop off location where an Uber East driver will complete the order instead of delivering it directly to the customers.
The company also looks forward that drones could land on parked vehicles located near the delivery location.
Uber formed a proprietary airspace management system called Elevate Cloud Systems that will guide the drones to their location.
The firm initially tested the drone delivery with McDonald’s in San Diego and will be expanded to additional Uber Eats restaurants.
The drone service would also give data that will help manage its air network.
