This week marked a milestone in drone delivery. The first FAA approved long-distance drone flight using neither a ground-based radar or human visual observer took place in Kansas.

Iris automation’s on-board collision avoidance system performed better than a human-controlled drone 95-percent of the time during testing.

Burger King is shipping its meatless burger to consumers in Europe.

Burger King’s parent company announce on Monday its plans to launch the meatless menu item in more than 20 European markets.

The Impossible Whopper helped the fast food chain’s same store sales increase by 5.5 percent in the third quarter, it’s largest quarterly jump in four years.

And last but certainly not least, it was Veterans Day on Monday.
