Google revealed that it’s working on a delivery drone project code named Project Wing. It is developing and testing this drone at Queensland in Australia.
The Google drone project is lead by Nicholas Roy who has been working on this for 2 years under Google X which is a so called secret division of Google that works on futuristic and major technologies and products.
In a video released on YouTube this Thursday, Google said “We’re only just beginning to develop the technology to make a safe delivery system possible, but we think that there’s tremendous potential to transport goods more quickly, safely and efficiently.”
Local farmers were also involved in this experiment where one of them got a chocolate bar delivered by the drone. Usually for getting this chocolate bar the farmer had to drive 10 KM in the town.
Google saved itself from the harsher policy for the remotely piloted aircrafts back in US by testing the drone in Australia. Amazon promised to bring drones for commercial delivery in 2013. However, it was not able to bring drones for the delivery purpose as of now. Google however seems to be quite aggressive with this initiative who knows we might start getting home delivery via drone sooner than expected.
