The Use of Drones Expands to Food Delivery Service


One of the major tech advancements, Drones are being employed for monitoring, protection, mapping, inspection, and detection because of their accessibility to challenging and remote areas. Expanding their domain to incorporate food delivery is surely the next reasonable step.

The hospital delivered medicines to heart, kidney, and eye patients at their doorsteps using drones, ensuring the patients stayed indoors during the lockdown inflicted due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
