Uber will be delivering burgers by drone as early as this summer in the United States

Receive chips or a burger in the air? It is almost a reality in San Diego, where the company Uber will start its testing delivery by drones as early as this summer. The firm has unveiled its plans Wednesday on the occasion of the Uber Elevate Summit, a yearly event which brings together actors of the air transport urban. She works in particular with the restaurant chain Mcdonald's to design a package of optimal transport (so that nothing moves and everything stays warm during the ride). The team behind Uber Elevate section of the company includes the air services, believes that drones are the "future of food delivery". And if their choice is focused on San Diego, it is because the city is part of the 10 jurisdictions selected by the federal Administration of aviation (responsible for regulating air traffic in the United States) to test drones for commercial purposes. In addition, the city is famous for its climate, sunny and quiet, which facilitates the flight of the aircraft.

so far, the drones of the firm will not be able to land in consumers, because of the problems of security and noise pollution. The gear will fly up to a safe area, where a driver will come pick up the package to bring it to the buyer. According to Uber, the drones will significantly reduce the delivery time: on a route of 2.5 kilometres, the wait will pass in about 20 minutes (for a transport classic by the roads) to just seven minutes with the aerial devices. For the costs of transportation, Uber account for the time to align its tariffs with those of the "Eats" its service of food delivery to home. In San Diego, they can reach up to 8,5 dollars to the maximum, or about € 7.50.

A new city for a taxi-flying Uber -

Before you begin testing, Uber still needs to wait for the agreement of the federal Administration of aviation. Wing, the subsidiary of Google that specializes in delivery by drone, was the first to receive their green light. Thus, since the end of April, the firm of Mountain View has started testing in two u.s. cities of the State of Virginia: Blacksburg and Christianburg. And this is not the only competitor which is going to rub Uber. Amazon, the world leader in e-commerce, has recently presented a new model of drones. The latter will be more robust than the devices of Uber and Wing (designed to carry small packets), and will be able to deliver packages of a little more than two pounds. This is a battle that will be played out in the years to come. Kate Fraser, at the head of the political Uber-Elevate, explains in Bloomberg that the delivery service by drones Uber will be at least three years before settling everywhere.

Obviously the head in the clouds, Uber has also taken advantage of the Elevate Summit to unveil a third city to test another initiative: taxis-flying. In fact, after Dallas and Los Angeles, california, Usa, Melbourne (Australia) joined the club yet very closed to territories that will host these trials. By 2020, residents will be able to fly away from the Westfield shopping center to the major airport: all of this is a trip of 20 kilometers and will be done in just 10 minutes (25 by car). At the level of the operation, the users will have to book a flight on the app Uber (as for any other route) and travel to the platforms of take-off (called the "Skyports"). The tests for these taxis flying will begin next year, and the service provides for its official launch in 2023.
