Uber to test 5-minues food delivery by drones

Cravings are real! If you can’t wait for even 30 minutes for your food to get delivered and highly concerned about the morals of asking low paid bikers to rush themselves into traffic to get you a room temperature pizza, Uber has a better solution.

The world’s largest online food delivery platform, Uber is now preparing to lift its service sky-high. Literally! And the delivery would hardly take 5 minutes to reach your place.

According to Bloomberg, Uber has plans to make food deliveries in the future using drones. Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said that the company is initiating the trial session in San Diego as part of an across-the-board commercial test program.

With this next-level service, the company is looking to reduce the time consumed in delivering food down to 30-minutes (a standard already set by McDonald’s).

The US Transportation Department has chosen 10 states, local and tribal governments, and a handful of companies, including companies like Alphabet Inc, FedEx Corp, Qualcomm Inc, Intel and Uber to work in partnership on the commercial drone testing plan.

This is the only thing on Uber’s table. In recent times, Uber declared a partnership with NASA to take it’s “flying car’ thought to more thoughtful stages.

This collaboration will reinforce associations between both the organizations and also permit them to explore concepts and technologies related to urban air mobility (UAM) to make sure a secure and well-organized system for future air transport in populous areas.

As part of the deal, Uber will share its statistics with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration to travel the world closer to emerging air traffic management systems for a world with airborne cars.

Presently, the trial of these cars has been caught up as one of its self-driving vehicles crashed into and killed a pedestrian in Tempe, Arizona. On this, Khosrowshahi said that Uber would recommence with the testing in “the next few months,” once the National Transportation Safety Board completes its inquiry.
