Drones deliver sushi, beer and ice cream in Tel Aviv as part of pilot project

Oct 11, 2021

’s Startups and Business editor and reporter. A drone flies near the city of Tel Aviv on October 11, 2021, in a pilot run by the Israel Innovation Authority with partners to create a network of drone deliveries in Israel (Emanuel Fabian/Times of Israel) Drones delivered sushi, beer and ice cream orders to waiting members of the media right off the Tel Aviv beach on Monday as part of a government-led initiative to create a national drone network and pilot drone flights for deliveries across Israel. The National Drone Initiative entered the third of eight planned phases in the pilot program last week, launching a 10-day demonstration to test drone flights above urban areas in Tel Aviv, Jaffa, Ramat Sharon, Herzliya and Hadera, where the second phase of the project launched in late June. In this new stage, the drones will have carried out around 300 flights a day above open areas for different tasks such as testing the autonomous systems, analysis of in-air behavior, delivering food at a drop-off point, and even delivering donated blood from the Magen David Adom blood bank in the Tel Aviv area to the Sheba Medical Center at Tel HaShomer Hospital right outside the city. The overall aim is to help fine-tune drone technology and procedures and ultimately help cut road congestion and improve air quality by creating a network of air corridors for unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) deliveries of medicine, medical examinations and equipment, apparel, food and goods. The program was established last year as a collaboration between the Israeli Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (C4IR) at the Israel Innovation Authority, the Israel Civil Aviation Authority (ICAA) and the Smart Transportation Authority, the Israeli Ministry of Transport through the Ayalon Highways company, as well as private Israeli and foreign companies, to promote the use of drone delivery as a service.

The challenges, she said, include concerns over flying near residential areas, large birds and noise, and addressing them is a work-in-progress.

At the moment, the drones have 5-km radius missions and can carry a load of approximately 2.5 kg (5.5 pounds). In the future, the drones will be able to carry heavier goods and travel longer distances. The Israel Innovation Authority said that next year, the drones used will be capable of 100-km radius missions.

And we do this through testing and experimenting,” said Dagan. One of the key characteristics of the project is the multitude of companies and parties invited to take part to create a competitive market that cannot be dominated by one player, Dagan added.

This is very unique,” said Dagan. Partem noted that one of the reasons Israel can lead in these spaces is because of the military backgrounds of the many people involved in the initiative, including the founders of the drone companies piloting their tech with the project.

(Idan Gross for Israel Innovation Authority) At the Hatzuk beach in northern Tel Aviv on Monday, reporters, video journalists and other members of the press were treated to a live demonstration of how a sushi order could be delivered via drone; first by placing the order through an app and then waiting for the drone to travel the five kilometers (3.1 miles) to pick up the food and touch down at the drop off point back near the beach, as somewhat bewildered beachgoers looked on. A second drone also carried cold beer, and a third drone delivered ice cream later in the day at Charles Clore beach in southern Tel Aviv. One sandy, elderly beachgoer was curious enough to hike the short distance from the shore to the grass-covered area where the demonstration was taking place, to take photos and videos and try to get a sense of what was happening.

The world has changed so much. I’m getting older now, I’m sad that I won’t be around much longer to see what else the future has in store,” he told The Times of Israel.
