‘Francesco’s Pizzeria’ in Mumbai tested delivery of pizza by unmanned aerial vehicle commonly known as drone. Mumbai’s traffic is always busy and it’s tough to deliver pizza within 30 minutes, so they tried to execute a delivery by taking the aerial route. The restaurant is planning to use more drones in future. Drone can travel up to 8-15 km in single charge and it costs around $2000.
However, Mumbai police has written to the pizza outlet asking why they did not take their permission. There was news about Mumbai police already using drones during festival time to keep watch on the community.
