The drone delivered the goods 13 minutes after ordering on Amazon

The drone delivered the goods 13 minutes after ordering on Amazon An application for the implementation of the delivery of purchases by unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) was made by many trading companies several years ago, but the authorities of many countries do not allow implementing a promising project. Even live testing is still not all companies have been able to implement. And yet, \True, not in the USA, but in the UK. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos announced the first successful commercial use of this type of delivery on his Twitter account. According to him, only 13 minutes passed from the moment of making the purchase in the online store to the delivery to the buyer named Richard B. In the delivered box was the entire customer order — an Amazon Fire TV set-top box and popcorn packaging. First-ever #AmazonPrimeAir customer delivery is in the books. 13 min — click to delivery.

Work with UAVs is evaluated in three positions: flying beyond the line of sight of the operator in rural and suburban areas; testing a GPS navigator and other installed sensors that should help the drone avoid obstacles in its path; the ability to control multiple drones at once by one operator. Used drones will be able to transport goods weighing up to 5 kilograms a maximum of 30 minutes after the order is placed. Amazon plans to deliver 1,000 points seven days a week during daylight hours in fine weather. But at the same time, Amazon Prime Air should be tested for viability. Дрон доставил товар через 13 минут после заказа на Amazon (видео) It is known that now the company works with only two customers, but in the future the number of delivery addresses will increase to hundreds. During the test phase, customers do not pay for the fast / urgent delivery made by the drone, but everything can change when Amazon Prime Air officially starts operating throughout the country.
