Zomato Partners with Vodafone Idea for Drone Food Delivery Ecosystem

Published

on

Online Food Ordering and Delivery Platform Zomato has entered into a partnership with Vodafone-Idea to conduct the experimental flights beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) drones. The development has come days after Zomato had called off the acquisition deal with TechEagle.

Vodafone-Idea would provide LTE (long term evolution) support to TechEagle’s drones for seamless connectivity in the delivery process. The drones will be powered with Vodafone Idea SIM card that would help to collect relevant data for future optimization.

Zomato had already tested its first drone delivery with a fusion of rotary-wing and fixed-wing in June last year. It successfully covered a distance of 5 km carrying a load of 5 kgs in 10 minutes at that time. However, the experiment was done when TechEagle was a part of the Alibaba-backed company.

Vodafone Idea and Zomato are part of the ClearSky association, which is one of the 13 consortia that have been allowed by the DGCA to take part in trials. ClearSky includes Gurugram based startup TechEagle Innovations, Bengaluru-based AI company Curl Analytics, and US-based drone traffic management company, Airmap, another source involved in the project confirmed.
