China Experimenting With Drones For Delivery Service
Sep 04, 2013 09:16
China is taking the drone delivery business pretty seriously. A Shenzhen based courier service called SF Express is testing "high tech" drones that can deliver packages to remote locations. With a built in navigation system, the drones can go where trucks can't. It's interesting. And it's brilliant.
Its not the first of its kind, but SF Express might just make this into a real business. The navigation system is smart enough that courier services simply type in an address, and then the drone carries the package right to it.
An American startup called Matternet is working on a similar service but is more related to transport relief aid.
