Uber announced a few big plans at its product event on Monday, including autonomous deliveries and the ability to specify if you want your ride to be an electric vehicle. Now, to be clear, these new features will not be rolling out to everyone right away. Uber rolled out its Comfort Electric program in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, and Dubai, while promising it would add more cities soon. The feature lets riders choose an electric ride, similar to how you can order a larger vehicle (Uber XL) or a ride with your pet (Uber Pet). “It’s as simple as tap a button and request a ride in a premium EV like a Tesla or Polestar,” the company wrote in a press release

In an announcement this week, the UK’s Royal Mail unveiled plans to scale its use of drone technology by creating over 50 new postal drone routes over the next three years, which will help serve residents in more remote communities. 
Aside from the convenience factor, the company noted the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) could lessen its carbon emissions, and improve the reliability of mail services, especially in rural areas. 
At the moment, the Royal Mail relies on ferries, conventional aircraft, and land-based vehicles to carry out deliveries, which are often disrupted by bad weather conditions. 
In a test trial conducted in April on the Shetland Islands, the twin-engine UAV showed the ability to fly even in inclement weather, and could carry up to 100 kg (220 lbs) of mail in all shapes and sizes for two flights between the islands daily.
The first of the new drone routes will service residents on the Isles of Scilly, Shetland Islands, Orkney Islands, and the Hebrides
