First Drone Delivery To A US Urban Area Goes Off Without A Hitch
It's getting us one step closer to our real goal: drone-delivered pizza.By Eugene Daniels | March 25, 2016
Ladies and gentleman, we're one step closer to having drone-delivered pizza pop up right on our doorsteps. Maybe.
For the first time ever, a completely autonomous drone made a federally approved delivery in an urban area. The company, Flirtey, says the drone flew about half a mile and delivered bottled water, food and a first-aid kit to a vacant home in Nevada. Sounds like everything I'd need for a night in.
This urban delivery is a big deal because it's one step closer to proving drones can successfully move around buildings and power lines and drop off packages safely.
