Chipotle will be delivering food like never before— in the air. Drones will bring burritos from the Tex Mex chain to a small group of students and employees on Virginia Tech’s campus.
The University is conducting the test with Project Wing, a unit of Google’s parent company Alphabet Inc. The testing will begin this month and only last a few weeks. Navigational accuracy and people’s response will be examined from a food truck, reported Bloomberg.
“This is the most complex delivery flight operation that I am aware of that’s occurred on U.S. soil,” said Mark Blanks, the partnership director.
Drone delivery service has been making headlines recently with companies jumping on board with the idea including Amazon.com Inc.
