Amazon Testing Drone Delivery System

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.

This sounds good in theory. But they would have a lot of bugs to work out. But if they can somehow work out the problems, this would be AMAZING!

Somebody could've bring down the drone and steal it along with the package it carry. Someone already tested special trained eagle that snatch the drone in midair. Sure, maybe the drone can't be use by the thief. But the components, like the high performance motor, would still worth something.

If they did this In the hood the buyers wouldn't get their item and the drone wouldn't return😂

I'd be more worried about the distance: How far are these things supposed to go? How heavy can they carry? Would it account for residential floors? (Since people don't always live on the ground floor). Sure, it's been a few years, but they should work on refining these over and over.

Hi I am planing to do my PhD in E-Commerce.Therefore, could someone help me to fine tune my PhD top and suggest me some key objectives.The Topic is "THE IMPACT OF DRONES IN ONLINE BUSINESS"

Wow, what a wonderfully impractical idea that was... Imagine tens of thousands of these little buggers cluttering up the sky, blowing around all over the place, cutting off little arms and legs. Like wasps but their sting is slightly more deadly. The other day I counted literally NONE of these drones up in the sky, oh what a surprise! :)

We can engage them with ground to air projectile or we can use electronic counter measures ECM to distract them. If one of them pass over your home and violates your airspace, you can warn and then seek and destroy. You can prepare fighter drones which will be in readiness to engage the possible enemy craft like this - SCRAMBLE SCRAMBLE! INCOMING ENEMY CRAFT! PREPARE FOR LAUNCH!

from Rattlesnake Tribe at Flanders Lane Banished Island: it's useful if it's piloted by a computer. We don't need humans. It's practical. The drones can fly so it's faster. But if there are objects or obstacles in the air (birds, planes, another drone, electrical posts) it's dangerous for drones.
Sébastien Franc (1 year ago)
from Rattlesnake Tribe at Flanders Lane Banished Island: that's dangerous if we meet a thief. That's nice because we use technology and imagine a new role for the machine although that's bad because the drone can replace humas and dismiss jobs. That's faster than a vehicle and more ecological
Sébastien Franc (1 year ago)
from Rattlesnake Tribe at Flanders Lane Banished Island: it's a good idea because it's very fast but there are thieves and it's dangerous for birds and people. Maybe the drone can bump onto a tree and was broken by this ( for the prize it's very bad!)

from Rattlesnake Tribe at Flanders Lane Banished Island: good idea for the future!

you all need to realize that we do not steal amazon boxes from people's door. why? you'll be jailed if caught. And if you steal the drone that made a delivery to your address, yeah keep it as long as police knocks the door :D

Anyone who is talking about shooting it down or stealing it is an idiot. Stuff already gets stolen now, when UPS drivers leave stuff on the doorstep in view of anyone who walks past. A drone could drop it off in a backyard where its out of plain sight, and it's only 30 minutes, so you would know when it shows up. And shooting down a drone is illegal, and you can get caught very easily.

I can see this as just a novelty thing, you have to live close to the distribution center for this to even be feasible, I mean with in a few miles..any farther and it is back to the regular delivery services, and how much more are they going to charge you for this novelty delivery ?

The law
AHammockdream (1 year ago)
+Boner Patrol  true but if you know where the tracking device it and disable it.  and if it was shot down in a remote area they would never find who did it. bu yeah  otherwise its not worth it
Nerd Strangler (1 year ago)
+AHammockdream Probably the same thing that prevents people from shooting the UPS guy and stealing his packages.... not worth going to prison for a 3-pack of HDMI cables.

+John Ten It's probably factored into Prime's cost. That's if they don't simply ask for a more expensive subscription if you want Prime Air.
Kevin Poynter (2 years ago)
well i honestly needed some shooting practice and free stuff isn't bad, or i could sneak up right after the drone delivers the box and take it for my own lol
Kevin Poynter (1 year ago)
+HardenedMidget I was saying it as a joke anyways, there's no need for me to steal from others
HardenedMidget (1 year ago)
This is already done by people who just take stuff off of other people's doorsteps when the UPS guy leaves it, and shooting the drone down definitely wouldn't be legal.
Kevin Poynter (1 year ago)
Too many risks
Nerd Strangler (1 year ago)
+Kevin Poynter You realize you can just follow the UPS guy around and steal the packages he leaves on doorsteps, assuming you are that desperate to steal random crap you probably dont want or need.
