Yes it’s true, the delivery game has changed. The future of package deliveries is here – and it uses drones for the task. Thanks to Amazon, the use of flying machines to deliver packages has become a reality. The testing phase is done, now you need to wait for the launch. Here are some things you need to know about Amazon Prime Air.
It’s Like a Small Helicopter
The drone utilizes vertical landing and take-off, with horizontal flight operation to get the item to you. This drone can hit speeds of up to 100 kph, touching base after each delivery to recharge.
There won’t be just a single design; Amazon plans to use several designs depending on the package to deliver at hand. These drones will need to home in onto a sort of beacon in form of a landing mat. This mat will get the drone in and act as a safe place for it to land. This mat will be light and easy to move, and easy to store when necessary.
Deliveries Might Be Tricky Sometimes
The drones have to land in a safe space, meaning that those people that live in crowded areas will have it rough getting a delivery. Additionally, areas with a lot of trees or electric wires might prove too tricky for a delivery.
Well, take the chance to deliver the package to a congested area and by the time you navigate the stairs, a package crook will have collected the delivery for you.
The Altitude is All That Matters
The drones will be able to fly at an altitude of up to 400 feet, keeping them away from aircrafts. However, a problem comes up – pigeons. No need to worry, the drones will come fully equipped with sensors and integrated cameras that will sense and navigate the drone away from not only pigeons but other airborne obstructions.
It will be Extremely Fast
You don’t have to wait between 3 and 5 days to receive your package, a few hours is all you need. In fact, if you are lucky enough, you get the package within 30 minutes of placing your order. This will be more convenient and quicker.
