Ever rising online shopping has created a crunch when it comes to delivery. The shopping has been made easy, but the delivery speed is still lagging as opposed to promised urgent deliveries. Quite a number of programs and initiatives have come to address the problem, but the data shows there is a delay, which will last a little longer than the expected time to solve the problem. One of such solutions is drone delivery. Though, in its infancy, drones are gaining popularity for its quick dispensing ability than the standard delivery.
Drones are set to come out in 2020 and began their operations as major companies like Amazon, Dominos, etc. are already experimenting with the deliveries. It would not come as surprise if you will get to see the drones in the coming year doing the deliveries.
The data shows at least orders of two million drones are in production that is set to come out in 2020. The funding invested and R&D done in drone technology is quite high in numbers. There are various challenges that had come across to commence the operations which include the space of delivery and the navigation to the drop point. With things like electric poles and wires and birds suspending in the sky, the drones would be calibrated to calculate all the obstacles to do a successful delivery. Though there was significant progress to bring the drones to reality, we will have to wait and watch until they hit the skies and become the resource of deliveries.
The current limitations restrict the deliveries of items about 80% of the total products available on e-commerce sites. But on the other side, the delivery would take less than thirty minutes after placing the order and the estimated cost for delivering is somewhere around $1. To outlast the weather conditions and enough power to deliver the products, it is yet to be seen how drones would actually do.
