UPS and many other companies are interested in using drones to deliver packages. In fact, UPS and CyPhy are already testing a drone capable of making commercial deliveries to remote or difficult-to-access locations.
Testing began on Thursday when the companies staged a mock delivery of urgently needed medicine from Beverly, Mass. to Children’s Island, which is about three miles off the Atlantic coast. […]In the mock scenario, the drone successfully carried an asthma inhaler to a child at a camp on the island, which is not reachable by automobile.
The drone is battery-powered and flies by itself. It has night vision and secure communications. UPS has more info on this drone.
