Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Why your pizza may never be delivered by drone

Will commercial delivery by drones become popular soon? Though faster delivery of pizza, books, and clothes have been talked around for some time, no large-scale delivery operators like Amazon or Pizza Hat has offered such service yet, at least at a national scale.

One reason is that technology to ensure that drones don’t collide or interfere with other flying objects, such as helicopters and airplanes, hasn’t been realized yet. In fact, there have been quite a few incidents that personal drones interfered with air controllers and police helicopters. Another reason is there are international rules that regulate the use of drones. In some country like Saudi Arabia, commercial or personal use of drones is not allowed. Also, there are concerns about privacy, security, noise, and threats to other flying creatures that deter the use of unmanned flying machines.

By the way, how resistant are commercial drones against wind and rain?

Enjoy reading and learn what factors need to be considered before delivery by drones become popular.
