Drone Delivery Will be the Next Big Thing in Our Digital World
Drone delivery as a concept isn’t new neither it appears to be impossible but being able to witness in next few years will certainly the most exciting thing for everyone. This latest tech news has left some people both surprised and astonished at the same time wondering whether we are living in the future or the science fiction. Some companies have been actively experimenting with the unmanned aerial vehicles or drone to be utilized in the deliveries capabilities to bolster the e-commerce. This included not just Google, Amazon but also pizza delivery firm Dominos in New Zealand and the list goes on.
Overcoming the problems
Getting drones to deliver packages isn’t as simple as it may appear. These companies have to deal with a wide variety of problems from the early days of their experiment. This included dealing with the airspace congestion and regulation related to it, finding the perfect payload balance, abiding by the flight time limitation imposed by the government and keeping track of the weather conditions. These companies have to come up with the solution for these problems and that also in the economic fashion to give a challenge to the traditional logistical vehicles like car, van or trucks.
The latest tech news doing round is that Amazon has already started its very own service named Prime Air service which is performing beta testing in the suburbs of UK. This service is working gracefully to deliver products to the customer’s within few miles radius of the Amazon warehouse, and it is shipping packages less than five pounds in weight.
Everyone is chipping into the drone technology
Among the latest tech news, NASA is taking everyone by surprise though announcing a related technology aimed towards developing autonomous vehicles in future. This technology will help in enhancing the autonomous crash management for the vehicles for tomorrow to be precise. Certainly it also brings an opportunity to bolster the delivering capability of the drones and make them land safely in the highly populated regions. Qualcomm is also working on enhancing the capability of the drones wherein it has been running trails of the 4G LTE networks to safely guide the drones even beyond the visual line of sight and keeping below feet. This will mean that the deliveries will become far more accurate and safer than possible through today’s logistical vehicles.
Sit back, relax and get your deliveries in time
It should be noted that the technologies which will be making their way to the drones will remain same or similar regardless of the company launching it first. Latest tech news even suggests that an open source drone OS might also emerge in upcoming years thereby allowing developers to boost the capability of the drones to the next level but at the same, it is seen as a security threat by some governmental agencies. But that doesn’t mean we won’t be having a drone at our service in the near future to bring the things we need in time.
