The World’s Fastest Deliveries Are Here Thanks To Zipline
The California-based startup has a new machine taking the world by storm, and it’s the perfect time to do so; the US is about to loosen rules governing drone operations, remember? Some may remember that Zipline created a national drone delivery system a while back, designed to ship blood and drugs to remote medical centers in Rwanda. Today, the same company introduces the world’s swiftest commercial delivery drone; with a top speed of 128 km/h (80 mph), the fixed-wing aerial robot will most likely grab everyone’s attention – from small to big businesses. Can you see the potential?
We can, and everyone else will soon do as well. Besides, since drone testing is soon to become way easier, Zipline will have no trouble in putting their money where their mouth is. The company has had plenty of experience, since its Rwanda project gathered around 300,000 kilometers in over 4,000 flights since October 2016.
This means they won’t be starting from scratch, allowing them to stay ahead of the curve. You just place an order, ’cause Zipline will have a drone up in the air within a minute. Able to manage 500 flights a day out of a single center, the company will deliver a load of up to 1.75 kilograms on a round trip of up to 160 kilometers. Thoughts?
