Oct. 5 -- If you're wondering what the future of shopping will be like, look no further than the outskirts of Reno, where a little startup called Flirtey is working on delivering packages to doorsteps with drones. They have a partnership with convenience store chain 7-Eleven and are experimenting first with over-the-counter medications to save parents with sick children a late-night run to the store. But the drone deliveries are made in insulated boxes, so a chili dog and slurpee dropping from the sky to your home is within reach.

Another day another #deliverydrone.This time, real world point to point deliveries in European weather. Last week UPS announced a partnership with Zipline to trial medical delivery flights in Rwanda. DHL are already out there doing it with their Parcelcopter tilt-rotor VTOL system. DHL Parcel has successfully concluded a three-month test of its third Parcelcopter generation. The trial run, part of a larger research and innovation project, was conducted between January and March 2016 in the Bavarian community of Reit im Winkl. It represents the first time worldwide that a parcel service provider has directly integrated a parcelcopter logistically into its delivery chain. Private customers in Reit im Winkl and up on the Winklmoosalm plateau were invited to test out the specially developed Packstations, dubbed the Parcelcopter Skyport. During the three month trial period, they could simply insert their shipments into the Skyport to initiate automated shipment and delivery per Parcelcopter. A total of 130 autonomous loading and offloading cycles were ultimately performed. As part of the trial, the technically upgraded vehicle was able to deal with heavier loads, longer distances and delivery to an alpine region notable for its geographical and meteorological challenges. The first task was to master the rapidly changing weather conditions and severe temperature fluctuation in the test area. With that achieved, the DHL Parcelcopter then performed a series of flawless flights. Each round trip from valley to plateau at roughly 1,200 meters above sea level covered eight kilometers of flight. The drone’s cargo was typically either sporting goods or urgently needed medicines and it arrived at the Alm station within just eight minutes of take-off. The same trip by car takes more than 30 minutes during winter.

Over the past few years, some people have taken drones from small almost toy devices for carrying a cameras to mini aircraft that are capable carrying a single person. http://curious-droid.com/bfah EHang 184 The Ehang 184 created a huge buzz when it was debuted at CES 2016. They claim it is the world's first fully autonomous helicopter drone. The Ehang 184 is a 200Kg, eight-rotor aircraft which the company claims it is able to lift a single 100kg person, up 500 metres into the air and fly them at up to 100Kmph to any point on Google Maps, avoiding objects automatically and safely handling take-off and landing all without the need for any piloting skills from the person being carried. The range is as far as it could fly with the 23 minutes of flight time afforded by the batteries which a recharge time of 2 hours. Ehang is keen to point out that in the event of the drone experiencing problems, human pilots housed in custom built "command centres" will be able to take over and guide you to safety. Quadro UAS In the Netherlands, Thorstin Crijns the man behind Quadro UAS, has been developing an autonomous drone aircraft and has been featured on news and TV programs around Europe. Quadro UAS is primarily a one-man operation and Thorstin started out as a software engineer and gained experience whilst working and a company making Unmanned Aerial Systems and drones. However, he realized that he need to more experience in other technical areas like mechanical stress calculations and circuit design. And has spent a lot of time gaining these new skills in order to make his prototype aircraft. Aero-X The Aero-X from Los Angeles firm Aerofex Inc is a two man low altitude flying vehicle that is sort of a drone but not a drone and a sort of a flying All Terrain Vehicle. One of the major differences between this and the other electrically powered drone type craft is that this is much simpler and uses no electronic stability control systems. It is designed to be ridden much like a motorbike but can also be used as an unmanned vehicle to do agricultural duties like crop spraying or surveying for example. The idea is not a new one and is based on a design from over 50 years ago. The PA-59K flying jeep or Airgeep was created by Frank N. Piasecki, founder of the Piasecki Helicopter and aircraft Corporation. The Airgeep was the winner of a US army completion to make a low flying vehicle capable of traveling over land or water a bit like a hover craft but being able to fly over trees and larger obstacles, it also had speed of up to 75 mph. Flike The Flike or Flying Bike is an electrically powered tricopter drone designed by the Hungarian Bay Zoltan Ltd, a state owned non profit applied research institute in Hungary. The idea of the Flike was Originally conceived in the summer of 2014, when a magazine article appeared that said drones are OK as small craft but would not be able to carry the weight a person. This gave them the idea to make a drone that could carry a person and in the space of a year they took the idea from the drawing board to their first manned flight. Volocopter The German made Volocopter blurs the lines between a drone and a helicopter and is aimed at those who want the flying experience of the helicopter but without the high costs and long training time involved. The layout of the Volocopter is similar to a helicopter with all the rotors fixed in a grid above the main cabin and is similar in size to the swept area of a normal helicopter rotor. The difference between a helicopter is that the Volocopter has 18 electrically powered rotors which means there in much more built in redundancy, you could lose a couple of the rotors and still be able to fly.

Support My Channel By Shopping on Amazon! http://amzn.to/2atadUZ SUBSCRIBE https://goo.gl/OXghgH https://www.facebook.com/deejay.gabriel.7 Amazon's chief executive has revealed that the company is testing a new service involving delivery by mini-drones to get packages to customers in just 30 minutes. Jeff Bezos appeared on CBS television's 60 Minutes programme in the US where he played a video from their website showing tiny robotic devices, called 'octocopters', picking up items in small yellow buckets and whizzing them through the air. "I know this looks like science fiction. It's not," Mr Bezos said. "We can do half-hour delivery ... and we can carry objects, we think, up to five pounds which covers 86% of the items that we deliver." The mini-drones are powered by electric motors and could cover areas within a 10-mile radius of fulfillment centres, thus covering a significant portion of the population in urban areas in the US. The retail giant's ambitious project still requires additional safety testing and federal approval but Mr Bezos estimated that Amazon 'Prime Air', as it would be called, would be up and running in four to five years. They operate autonomously and drop the items at the target locations thanks to GPS coordinates transmitted to them. "It's very green, it's better than driving trucks around," said Mr Bezos. Amazon said the octocopters would be "ready to enter commercial operations as soon as the necessary regulations are in place," noting that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) was actively working on rules for unmanned aerial vehicles. It projected a more optimistic timeline than Mr Bezos himself for the project to be activated, saying the FAA's rules could be in place as early as 2015 and that Amazon Prime Air would be ready at that time. Mr Bezos hinted that part of the motivation behind the mini-drones was to make sure Amazon remains on the cutting edge of the retail industry. "Companies have short life spans ... And Amazon will be disrupted one day," he said. "I would love for it to be after I'm dead." It is not known if there are plans for the service to be launched outside of the US.

ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA — Amazon has filed a patent for a self-driving airship that can store inventory and be used as a base to launch delivery drones. Amazon’s airborne fulfillment centers would hover at an altitude of 45,000 feet and be the focal point of a network of unmanned aerial vehicles. The patent for the airship was filed in 2014 but only came to light last week, when it was uncovered by Zoe Leavitt, an analyst at technology research company CB Insights, Reuters reported. The self-driving airships would carry a cargo of Amazon products and unmanned drones to deliver goods to customers. The drones could navigate horizontally to their destination and would use little to no power, according to the patent. The airships would be replenished by smaller, unmanned service vehicles, which could carry workers, drones, fuel, and inventory. One potential use of the airships could be at big events, such as concerts or football games, where they could be used to deliver souvenirs, or food. Amazon has successfully tested deliveries by drone in the UK and is waiting for federal approval to roll out the service in the United States, USA Today reported. ------------------------------------------------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Domino's has tested out a prototype for a flying drone that can deliver pizzas. The device carried two large pepperoni pizzas and conducted a flight. How do you get your pizza delivered? Last month, Domino's pizza teamed up with a creative agency titled T + Biscuits to test out a prototype for a flying drone that can deliver cheese pies. Described as an octacopter, the device carried two large pepperoni pizzas and conducted a flight over a city near London. The pizzas, both contained in an insulated bag, were secured to the drone. They were delivered in perfect condition and it only took about 10 minutes to venture 4 miles. The founder of T + Biscuits stated "If anything it went quicker than a pizza boy. We were amazed at how easy it was going to be." The drone is being called the DomiCopter. Although the device won't take the place of human delivery drivers anytime soon, Domino's is reportedly experimenting with the drone at their UK headquarters. Federal Aviation Administration authorities estimate that private drones will make up a $90 billion industry within 10 years.

SEATTLE — Amazon has submitted a patent for using tall structures like lamp posts and church steeples as docking and recharging stations for its delivery drones. The patent is for a series of multi-use unmanned aerial vehicle docking stations. The system outlined in the patent would enable Amazon to recharge and house its drones remotely in between deliveries at the stations. The company would also be able to provide maintenance and navigational guidance to lost drones. THe stations could also double as delivery hubs, where drones can drop off packages to be picked up by its receiving Amazon Prime user or another drone for further delivery. Amazon wants to allow drones to perch atop existing tall structures, such as lamp posts, cell towers, power poles and buildings. The patent is still pending. The company looks to develop a system of UAV drones that would deliver packages within 30 minutes or less. ------------------------------------------------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

We all want shipping to be faster. Amazon has been working on Amazon Prime Air, and while that's exciting - we wanted to beat them. We realized that we have some of the best drones in our warehouse - why not put them to use? We grabbed a DJI Phantom 3 Professional, the one with 4k video, hooked up some straps to it - and delivered our first package. The whole process couldn't have gone smoother. Right now we are delivering wishing a 1 mile radius from our warehouse, but we hope to expand that by 10% annually. Note: This is not real - yet. We just wanted to spoof what Amazon was doing. While we'd love to offer this to all of our awesome customers, the laws don't allow it at this time :(

CHILDREN’S ISLAND, MASSACHUSETTS — Package delivery company UPS partnered with drone-maker CyPhy Works to conduct a test delivery using a drone last Thursday. The drone used in the test delivery was CyPhy Works’ Persistent Aerial Reconnaissance and Communications system (PARC). It flew three miles over the Atlantic Ocean from Beverly, Massachusetts to Children’s Island, where it successfully delivered an asthma inhaler to a child at the camp. The PARC drone is battery-powered and equipped with night vision. It also features secure communications system, preventing information from being intercepted or disrupted. “Drone technology used in this way can save lives and deliver products and services to places that are difficult to reach by traditional transit infrastructures, ” Helen Greiner, the founder and chief technology officer of CyPhy Works said in a press release. Greiner told NBC49.com that the drones are not going to replace delivery trucks. The United States Federal Aviation Administration’s rules for commercial use of drones officially took effect last month, which include a number of restrictions on commercial drone operations. ------------------------------------------------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

United Parcel Service announced that it has started testing the use of drones for emergency deliveries of medical supplies this week with a flight in rural Massachusetts. The company is hoping for federal approval of drones as a regular delivery option. The drone successfully delivered a small package from Beverly, located about 25 miles northeast of Boston, to Children's Island, a summer camp for children three miles off the Atlantic coast. It took about 8 minutes total. Earlier this year UPS announced it was backing a start-up using drones in Rwanda to transport life-saving blood supplies and vaccines. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/domesticNews/~3/Ad6ceBgEmtk/us-united-parcel-drones-delivery-idUSKCN11T1BZ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit Business using http://wochit.com

All have big implications for traditional conceptions of privacy, as unmanned planes can loiter over people's backyards and snap pictures for far longer than piloted aircraft." Drone Hijacking? That's Just the Start of GPS Troubles http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2012/07/drone-hijacking/all/ On the evening of June 19, a group of researchers from the University of Texas successfully hijacked a civilian drone at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico during a test organized by the Department of Homeland Security.

Now huge companies are looking to separate the pilots from the machines for a new era of unmanned transportation. "I see a not too distant future where drone deliveries are ubiquitous, where a drone delivering a package to you or your neighbour is more common than a postman or Fedex van", says Matt Sweeny, the young CEO of Flirtey. His ambitions have seen his small company, working out of the University of Nevada, lock horns with the likes of Google and Amazon in this generation's airspace race. "You see technology that is so incredibly transformative that you realise you're on the cusp of something that could be enormous" says Michael Drobac of the Small UAV Coalition. But will such drastic change come at a cost to public safety? "These are dense heavy metal pieces that will wreak havoc on an aircraft... there is going to be a significant event" says Airline Pilots association president, Tim Canoll.

UPS Inc., teaming up with drone-maker CyPhy Works, launched a mock delivery of urgently needed medicine from Beverly, Mass. to Children’s Island, which is about three miles off the Atlantic coast. The battery-powered drone flies itself, so very little user training is required. It is extremely durable, has night vision and features secure communications that cannot be intercepted or disrupted.

Watch engineers at Google trial their new delivery system that uses self-flying vehicles to drop off parcels in remote locations. With companies from fast food restaurants to Amazon all attempting to perfect delivery by drone it was only a matter of time before Google unveiled its vision. The resulting aircraft by Project Wing is larger than many rival drones, with a wingspan of approximately 1.5m (4.9ft), and is powered by four electrically-driven propellers. So far it has successfully delivered small items, including a first aid kit, candy bars, dog treats, and water to farmers in Queensland, Australia. The prototype Google drone is able to hover above its destination and drops its load on a string. The future of drone delivery, however, remains uncertain. Google has yet to find a commercial partner to bring the technology to the wider public and opponents have voiced concerns over safety and privacy.
