Amazon announced Prime Air, a new Logistics experiment using Drones. Words from Amazon: The goal of this new delivery system is to get packages into customers’ hands in 30 minutes or less using unmanned aerial vehicles. Putting Prime Air into commercial use will take some number of years as we advance the technology and wait for the necessary FAA rules and regulations.
This innovation represents a major breakthrough on the way we handle logistics and retail, integrating several industries into a simpler and smarter planet. Hopefully, Amazon will be able to deploy this technology in the next few years in US – lets keep fingers cross to see this running properly “below the tropics”.
