OttOmate Guide to Drone Food Delivery
From A&K to Zing, these are the drone delivery services taking off around the world.
Drones food delivery services is a tale of two speeds. The technology side is moving quickly with drones becoming more robust, safe and advanced than ever. But the regulatory side is slow, as civil aviation authorities around the world conduct the painstaking process of making sure drones don’t fall from the sky, crash into other aircraft or are otherwise a nuisance.
Once regulatory hurdles are cleared, however, drones will swiftly rise up as a main method of food delivery. Drones are faster than human delivery drivers or sidewalk robots, dropping off hot food in minutes. Drones don’t clog up roadways with delivery vehicles, and, as the addage goes, you don’t need a two-ton car to drop off two tacos. And for emerging economies, drones offer a way to bypass infrastructure problems like bad road networks.
In other words — pay attention to these companies because their business, like the drones they fly, will take off vertically once all the elements are in place.
A quick note that unlike other OttOmate Market Guides on Sidewalk Delivery Robots, Bartender Robots, Robot Baristas and Pizza Robots — this guide to drone delivery proved to be the trickiest. I have reached out to all the companies listed to clarify their regulatory with the appropriate civil aviation authority as well as their service areas. As companies reply with new information, I will update this guide.
Additionally, if there is a service I inadvertently left out, please email me and I will add them post haste.
