New York (The Verge) — Uber says it will start delivering fast food by drone in San Diego this summer theverge.com/2019/6/12/1866….
Uber’s plans to start delivering fast food by drone in San Diego this summer are nearly coming to head, reports Bloomberg Businessweek. The deliveries will be three times faster than cars or bikes; cost roughly the same as regular UberEats deliveries; and will be sent to designated safe delivery zones.
Deliveries will not be made to customers’ houses, says Bloomberg, but instead, will be sent to “designated safe landing zones” where Uber couriers will unload the package by hand and take it to the customer’s doorstep. These landing zones might even include the roofs of parked Uber cars, which will be identified by the drones using QR codes. — James Vincent/@verge
