Soon, you won’t only have to look up to spot a drone, you’ll see them on the sidewalk, because this cute six-wheeled land drone from Starship Technologies is almost ready to start making deliveries. It’s in the testing phase around the world, while the company is signing partnerships with interested businesses.
Test programs all set to start this summer
Most recently, Starship Technologies partnered with Just Eat, a food delivery company in Europe, which intends to have the drones rolling along streets in London. Just Eat’s app brings together local restaurants, so you can order and pay for what you want in a single spot, with the deliveries currently made by people. In the near future, the drones will become part of Just Eat’s delivery work force. Announcements of the restaurants and exact locations where the drone will work will be made soon, and the expectation is to start the test program in the next few months.
