It’s the first and official drone delivery of food in the U.S (legally). I guess 7-Eleven made a history in partnership with Flirtey when it comes to drone delivery in the U.S
7 Eleven made history delivering chicken sandwich and slurpees, and other mouth watering foods. The food was delivered in a private home autonomously for one mile, coming from 7-Eleven store in Reno. The food package was attached to the drone and guided by GPS until it reaches the location. After it arrived in the location, the drone lowered the package with a harness.
The delivery of food is not all about just pack and fly, it was sanctioned and oversee by NIAS (Nevada Institute for Autonomous System) Flirtey and 7-Eleven made it sure to make flying safe by meticulously planning its special flight, risk analysis and flight procedures.
So far here are the details that we know so far…
- The food is loaded into a unique Flirtey drone delivery container and flown autonomously
- The delivery took place in Reno, Nevada, with the items loaded into a special box for hot and cold food
- Food delivered Slurpees, a chicken sandwich, donuts, hot coffee and candies
