Delivering pizza using a Drone…..

The blogger only saw what a small 4 wheeler drone was and could do in the movie 3 idiots.

Apparently, it is being used to solve real world solutions. This Outlook article talks about this really interesting experiment by a Pizza eatery in Mumbai. It delivers pizzas using drones! There is a video too:

The financial capital, notorious for its traffic snarls, has achieved a first in the country after a city-based pizza outlet used an unmanned drone to execute a delivery by taking the aerial route recently.

“All of us had read about (global e-commerce giant) Amazon’s plans of using drones. We successfully carried out a test-delivery by sending a pizza to a customer located 1.5 km away from our outlet on May 11,” Francesco’s Pizzeria chief executive Mikhel Rajani told PTI today.

He stressed that this was only a test-flight but its results confirm that it can be used routinely in a few years.

A four-rotor drone took off with the order from its outlet in central Mumbai’s Lower Parel area and delivered it to a high-rise building in adjacent Worli area, Rajani said, claiming that it is for the first time that the ubiquitous drone has been used for such a purpose in the country.

Obviously there are initial issues over the delivery method. But likely to be resolved.

Given how our cities are shaping up, air is the only way left. But that will only remain till these drones don’t occupy the space to deliver goods to us..
