Uber Eats will begin testing drone delivery of McDonald’s burgers in San Diego, executives announced at the Uber Elevate Summit in Washington, D.C.
According to the company
“Uber Air will be powered by Elevate Cloud Services (ECS), a suite of software including our own UTM service, to manage dense operations of unmanned, low-altitude air traffic. Our plan is to first deploy ECS in 2019 with autonomous drones under the FAA’s UAS Integration Pilot Program to begin testing urban drone deliveries for Uber Eats.”
The service will be expanded to additional Uber Eats restaurants in the city.
