Amazon proposed their drone delivery with Amazon Prime Air. Google follows up with Project Wing, a similar-in-concept delivery system of using drones to fly small objects to individuals. To explain the project, Google released the following video.
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 only just beginning to develop the technology to make a safe delivery system possible, but we think that there’s tremendous potential to transport goods more quickly, safely and efficiently.
We’re looking for partners who can help us bring this technology to the world. If you’re interested, please fill out this form: https://g.co/ProjectWing
