Deliveries by drones in Virginia
New service from a Google affiliate company - VIDEO
A subsidiary society of Google called "Wing" has launched a drone delivery service in Virginia. Customers have the option of getting the products bought online even after about four minutes from the purchase. Remote-controlled aircraft capable of flying up to about 125 km/h are able to carry packages weighing about 1 kg and travel up to about 10 km away. The software determines their path, a camera and sensors allow you to avoid obstacles.
"Experimentation will demonstrate the benefits of drone delivery and improved access to health products, creating new growth opportunities for local businesses and exploring ways to increase the efficiency of the last mile delivery service", a company spokesperson said.
