Camille to trial drone deliveries

Irish restaurant chain Camile Thai is to begin trialling food delivered by drone in Dublin next month.drone
The chain has partnered with Manna Aero, a Dublin company pioneering the use of drones for delivering takeaways within a two-kilometre radius of their base.
 Manna have been working with the Irish Aviation Authority for three years and they expect to receive permission to fly this month, which would allow them to proceed with live trials in March.

 

Brody Sweeney, the CEO and founder of Camile Thai, outlined the company’s plans at the recent UCC Commerce Society’s annual conference.
“We are the exclusive restaurant launch partners and we are starting live trials in Dublin in March,” Mr Sweeney said, adding that drone delivery would be offered from two sites in Ireland by the end of the year.
 
He said the system would allow users of the Camile Thai app to select drone delivery for their order and they would then be shown a satellite image of their home, overlaid with a grid allowing them to select the landing area, such as their driveway or back patio.
Mr Sweeney said drone deliveries would be faster than road vehicles and would be better for the environment.
 
Manna has raised $5m from venture capitalists and is one of a number of companies globally entering the drone delivery sector, including Amazon and Google.
