Chinese logistics company SF Express has begun using small drones to deliver packages to remote and mountainous areas in south China. SF Express says it already has a fleet of drones flying 500 parcels a day to the remote areas and now is looking to double capacity to 1,000 packages a day, according to an […]
Drone technology and how it is developing to push us toward a new paradigm in aviation. NOVA does a great job is presenting both military and non-military technologies being used and being developed for the future. They are on the ground with interviews and details of the MQ-1 (Predator) and MQ-9 (Reaper) drone pilot and […]
Seeking to hasten the use of drones for newsgathering, the Federal Aviation Administration on Monday announced it has signed a research agreement with CNN to share data from the network’s ongoing study of the issue with the goal of creating a framework for future use of such unmanned aircraft for that purpose. The FAA has […]
Project Wing is a Google[x] project that is developing a delivery system that uses self-flying vehicles. As part of our research, we built a vehicle and traveled to Queensland, Australia for some test flights. There, we successfully delivered a first aid kit, candy bars, dog treats, and water to a couple of Australian farmers. We’re […]
The Finnish company, Posti, completed a four day test of parcel delivery via a drone.
