Delivery Drones | DHL steals UPS thunder
 
03:15
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.

This Drone Startup Is Beating Amazon at Deliveries
 
03:28
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.

Amazon Testing Drone Delivery System
 
01:20
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.

5 Super Sized Drones You Can Ride - 2016 - Piloted drone
 
07:16
Over the past few years, some people have taken drones from small almost toy devices for carrying cameras to mini aircraft that are capable carrying a single person. Patreon : https://www.patreon.com/curiousdroid You can now translate this and other curious droid videos, see my video about it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xLPVgIytKyg 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 a custom built "command centres" will be able to take over and guide you to safety.

Amazon airship: Amazon patents unmanned airship to launch its delivery drones - TomoNews
 
07:21
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 Flying Drone Delivers Pizza
 
01:08
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.

Amazon Prime delivery drones might be docking on lamp posts, power poles, cell towers - TomoNews
 
01:36
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.

Walmart drone delivery: Walmart seeks FAA permission to test run drone delivery system - TomoNews
 
01:01
BENTONVILLE, ARKANSAS — Walmart applied to the Federal Aviation Administration on Monday for permission to test the use of drones for home deliveries and at its distribution centers and stores, reported Reuters. Walmart has been conducting indoor tests using Phantom 3 and S900 drones, both of which are manufactured by SZ DJI Technology of China, and is ready to move forward to outdoor testing, said Dan Toporek, a spokesman for Walmart. Walmart is seeking permission to use the drones to take stock of the contents inside trucks parked at its warehouses. Drones can also deliver groceries to pick-up points at store parking lots. Furthermore, Walmart wants to test whether drones can successfully make home deliveries in small residential neighborhoods after obtaining permission from the households in its flight path, according to a copy of the application reviewed by Reuters. The Federal Aviation Administration could take up to 120 days to review the application. If the FAA approves Walmart's application, the retail giant will be joining Amazon and Google in the competition over e-commerce services. The FAA is hoping to finalize its regulations on commercial drone use in the next eight months, said FAA Deputy Administrator Michael Whitaker to Reuters. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

UPS tests drone delivery of medicine in Massachusetts - TomoNews
 
00:59
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.

Google tests drone delivery service in Australian outback
 
02:03
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.

Drone Delivery Service: What Is Drone Delivery? Mercedes Van Electric Autonomous Drone Video CARJAM

What Is Drone Delivery / How It Works Autonomous Drone Delivery Service Video Mercedes Electric Van Autonomous Drone Video Watch in UltraHD + SUBSCRIBE #CARJAMTV CARJAM TV - Subscribe Here Now https://www.youtube.com/user/CarjamRadio/videos Like Us Now On Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/CarjamTV Website: http://www.carjamtv.com CARJAM TV: WORLD’S BEST CAR VIDEOS A delivery drone, is an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) utilized to transport packages, food or other goods. In the United States initial attempts at commercial use of UAVs, such as the Tacocopter company for food delivery, were blocked by FAA regulation.[1] As of 2015, delivering of packages with drones in the United States is not permitted.[2] On the 13th March 2015, in Sheffield, FPS Distribution completed the first commercial delivery using a UAV. UAVs can transport medicines and vaccines, and retrieve medical samples, into and out of remote or otherwise inaccessible regions.[3] "Ambulance drones" rapidly deliver defibrillators in the crucial few minutes after cardiac arrests, and include livestream communication capability allowing paramedics to remotely observe and instruct on-scene individuals in how to use the defibrillators. Matternet is a Silicon Valley startup developing small UAVs for the delivery of lightweight goods. Their transportation solution comprises small UAVs able to carry up to 1 kilogram goods over distances of up to 20 kilometers on a battery charge.[20] The UAVs are connected to a Cloud Software that aggregates weather, terrain and airspace data, and creates geo-fenced aerial routes for safe flight. The system is controlled by a smartphone app. It's been reported that Matternet is also developing automatic landing stations, where the UAVs would swap batteries to extend their range.[21] They have announced a public launch of the first UAV for transportation in Q1 of 2015.[22] Their website reports that Matternet is creating "The ‘Apple II’ of the drone industry: the most easy to use, desirable and safest personal flying vehicle you have ever experienced." Amazon Prime Air - Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos' December 2013 announcement that Amazon was planning rapid delivery of lightweight commercial products using UAVs was met with skepticism, with perceived obstacles including federal and state regulatory approval, public safety, reliability, individual privacy, operator training and certification, security (hacking), payload thievery, and logistical challenges.[26] In July 2014 it was revealed Amazon was working on its 8th and 9th drone prototypes, some that could fly 50 miles per hour and carry 5-pound packages, and had applied to the FAA to test them.[27] Google revealed in August 2014 it had been testing UAVs in Australia for two years. The Google X program known as "Project Wing" aims to produce drones that can deliver not only products sold via e-commerce, but larger delivery items[28] USPS has been testing delivery systems [29] with HorseFly Drones. FedEx is reported to be testing integration of drone delivery with their existing logistics[30] model. In December 2013, in a research project of Deutsche Post AG subsidiary DHL, a sub-kilogram quantity of medicine was delivered via a prototype Microdrones “parcelcopter,” raising speculation that disaster relief may be the first place the company will use the technology. DHL Parcelcopter already in use in Germany.[33] In February 2014, the prime minister and cabinet affairs minister of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) announced that the UAE planned to launch a fleet of UAVs for civilian purposes.[34] Plans were for the UAVs to use fingerprint and eye-recognition systems to deliver official documents such as passports, ID cards and licenses, and supply emergency services at accidents. A battery-powered prototype four rotor UAV about half a meter across was displayed in Dubai.[35] UK based FPS Distribution[36] and Switzerland's Swiss Post are both developing[37] drone delivery services for wide scale use. In December 2014, French mail services company La Poste unveiled experimental[38] delivery drone project. In February 2015, Hangzhou based e-commerce provider Ali Baba started[39] delivery drone services around select cities in China. In March 2015, Shenzhen based SF Express started[40] providing delivery services with Xaircraft drones in China. In May 2015, CJ Express initiates[41] delivery with drone services in South Korea. Amazon Prime Air is a conceptual drone-based delivery system currently in development by Amazon.com. On December 1, 2013, Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos revealed plans for Amazon Prime Air in an interview on 60 Minutes. Amazon Prime Air will use multirotor Miniature Unmanned Air Vehicle (Miniature UAV, otherwise known as drone) technology to autonomously fly individual packages to customers’ doorsteps within 30 minutes of ordering.

Chocolate Delivery across Hong Kong by Drone
 
02:13
Autonomous drone delivering a chocolate bar from Kowloon side to the south side of Hong Kong island in less than 14 minutes. Quadcopter always in sight of multiple operators along the route. Anyone wanting to try this, read below. Music: You're Not Alone (Original) by CMA FLIGHT PLAN Placing waypoints is easy, but ensuring long distance flights are as risk free and safe as possible requires a lot of time & planning and especially meticulous surveying of the route. All kinds of unexpected surprises not visible on satellite imagery such as new construction, cranes and power lines can be in the flight path, so make sure you survey in person. Google Earth/DTED elevation data can be inaccurate, especially along mountain ridges, and values do not include the height of obstacles (buildings, trees, ...) – make sure to include enough buffer, at least 80m over hilly terrain. Use a site such as www.emporis.com to check building heights, don't forget to include local elevation in the calculation. Measure the distance carefully and perform a test with the same distance, climbs, descents and any special autopilot actions as the actual planned flight to verify there are no bugs. Afterwards, check the battery voltage and capacity used to verify it has sufficient reserves for the planned flight (e.g. in case wind conditions change). If not, adjust plan and test again. INTERFERENCE Check if nearby mountain peaks have high power transmitting stations. They knock out video and/or control, sometimes GPS. Plan accordingly and verify your failsafes. GPS There are moments when you can receive less than 5 satellites – these usually last less than 30 mins, but if this coincides with your flight and you're using a regular GPS (especially NAZA), keep a larger distance from obstacles. Use a GNSS planning tool (http://www.trimble.com/GNSSPlanningOnline/) or a mobile app to check the # of sats for your planned location and time, and take into account any obstacles such as mountains/buildings that shield part of the sky. Modern receivers such as the UBLOX-M8N are much more reliable as they can receive GPS, GLONASS and/or BEIDOU simultaneously. Make sure the antenna is dual-band. AIR TRAFFIC Helicopters and private planes often fly low – you and your spotter must have a clear view of the airspace. If you fly beyond your visual range, you need additional pilots stationed further along the flight path with their own transmitters that are bound to the vehicle. Verify the behaviour of your failsafe after takeoff. WEATHER Use windfinder.com or an aviation weather service to confirm tailwind and no strong gusts. RULES Also, make sure you know the applicable law and guidelines given by the local aviation authorities. They exist for a reason, and all real pilots will sleep better knowing that RC hobbyists are doing their best to comply. FAILURES Don't perform flights like this if you've changed any hardware or updated any software/firmware in the last five flights. Especially software is evolving fast, and new bugs are constantly found. Although unlikely, Motors can fail, ESC's can burn out, a prop can fly off, sudden vibrations can confuse the IMU, a bird could attack the vehicle, ... Plan to avoid as much as possible any flight time over buildings, roads and people. BEGINNERS: Do your first five flights over an empty field. If something's wrong, this is when you'll notice. Know how to react when your vehicle suddenly flies in an unintended direction. Practice this so you can quickly react when this happens. Know how to switch to and fly in a mode without GPS (Attitude mode, stabilise mode, manual mode, ...) Yes, all this takes a lot of time and dedication. Plan and fly thoroughly and carefully. Accidents will ruin this hobby for yourself and the community. Safe flying!

UPS Testing Drone Deliveries In Florida
