Uber plans to kick off its drone food delivery service in San Diego this summer, according to Bloomberg.com. Uber Elevate, the aerial division of the ride-sharing company, is still waiting for approval from the Federal Aviation Administration.
According to the report, the drones will fly to designated safe landing zones and will be brought to the the purchaser’s door by couriers. Drones might also land on parked Uber vehicles identifiable through a QR code.
Bloomberg reports that Uber Elevate has plans of unveiling its own drone later this year, which will reach a speed of up to 70 mph. And, while testing has been done with McDonald’s, San Diego’s Juniper & Ivy signed on as a partner in May.
