With the UberEats, moved to Uber than just a service to connect people to service also provides food to customers, benefiting from their infrastructure as well as its drivers. However, it seems that Uber is planning to develop this service through the use of drones to deliver food.
This according to a new report released recently from the Wall Street Journal America indicates that recruitment processes conducted by Uber in the recent past has proved apparently the company’s plans to launch a food delivery service using unmanned aircraft in the year 2021. According to the list of jobs, the company are looking for someone who has ” experience and training in the area of normal flight“, and has the ability to ” help make the transport aircraft drone operating in the next year, used commercially in multiple markets by the year 2021 “.
Note that Uber had expressed interest in this idea in the past. Earlier this year, and exactly at the summit of the Uber Elevate Summit, the president spoke to the executive of the company about the possibility of providing a service for food delivery using drones, and now it seems that the recruitment campaign this confirms it. But it remains to be seen whether they will be able to launch in 2021 or not, note that there are some regulatory hurdles that the company must overcome.
The idea of using UAVs for delivery is not new. We have seen how tested some companies this idea, companies such as Domino’s in New Zealand which had been testing pizza deliveries using drones. It is logical to enable the UAV to avoid some of the problems of the systems of leakage current, such as traffic, which may lead to reduced delivery times, this may lead in turn to help businesses make more deliveries.
