According to Bloomberg, which got to witness the drone delivery in action in May, the company plans to begin drone delivery in San Diego this summer with pricing "consistent" with Uber Eats regular delivery that can now cost up to $8.50.

"We believe that Uber is uniquely positioned to take on this challenge as we're able to leverage the Uber Eats network of restaurant partners and delivery partners as well as the aviation experience and technology of Uber Elevate".

"We've been working closely with the FAA to ensure that we're meeting requirements and prioritising safety", said Luke Fischer, head of flight operations at Uber Elevate, the company's division focused on revolutionising operations in the skies. Couriers will then collect the deliveries and carry them the last leg of the journey.

Uber's vision for the future will have Eats orders delivered by drones.

According to Bloomberg, Uber Elevate doesn't plan on delivering food directly to your door, at least not yet.

The company says the initial phase of testing in San Diego was done with McDonald's, but that it will be expanded later this year to include more restaurants, including Juniper and Ivy.

Volvo and Uber have presented a new production vehicle, which is still based on an XC90, capable of fully autonomous driving. The vehicles are equipped with sensors and now being tested with humans supervising from the driving seat.

This latest development is part of a joint agreement that both companies agreed to enter in 2016, and brings Uber one step closer to a possible future deployment of self-driving cars in its network as a robotaxi service.

Uber also unveiled the latest versions of its electric bikes and scooters that round out its shared transportation system.
