Amazon Shows off New Delivery Drone at A Meeting in Las Vegas
Amazon presented a new delivery at a meeting in Las Vegas yesterday. The American web store giant wants to use the new delivery means “within a few months”.
The American company already delivered a delivery earlier. In 2016, for example, an Amazon drone was already delivering packages to the Association Kingdom. However, the then version was not good enough, so the new model has been improved on several points.
This drone is more stable and able to fly further; the maximum flight distance is 24 kilometres. Furthermore, the sensors of the drone would be better able to signal people, cars and overhanging cables, for example.
The latter is very important because safety concerns are an essential obstacle when it comes to drone delivery. For example, strict rules apply in the United States, making it difficult for delivery companies to deploy drones.
Aviation Authority FAA responded to Amazon’s plans immediately after the announcements. The web store giant may send his drones into the American air, but for the time being, this only applies to test flights and not to a real delivery service.
