Drones are taking over the world of delivery.
During the past few years, companies all over the planet have started to use drones in delivering their goods. At first, it started with simple means. Most companies started with these flying machines as some sort of promotional tactic. But I do not think anyone would have expected this kind of turnout.
The easiest way for drones to get into the delivery world is through online shops and apps. This is where online megastore Amazon came in. Another drone delivery option came with the pizza giant Domino’s. Basically, their aim with drone use is an easier buying experience for the customer. With the consumer not having to worry about going to actual stores and taking them home, it offers free time. Free time for people to do other things while they get their things at their doorstep.
London Hospital Drone System:
Brilliant, isn’t it? But now, it seems drones are getting more serious work, thanks to hospitals. Medical centers all over the world have a high demand for fast delivery. Lives are literally at stake with every medicine, blood, organ, or medical file delivered. Drones may actually be saving lives in the near future.
In London, a massive drone system may soon take over deliveries. The network will connect 34 London hospitals, receiving access to drone services. Here, items like blood, medicine, and even organs will be delivered. This would be a massive improvement to the usual delivery method, which is land transportation. Drones negate the main problem with land vehicles: traffic jams. Traffic is a main problem for delivery, especially in high density areas like inner cities. With drones, you get your items on time – all the time.
This system will connect 34 different medical facilities, meaning one can transfer to another in no time. Similar delivery systems are currently tested in other countries. They, however, tend to focus more on delivering from cities to rural clinics. But like the one in London, these systems are still in their experimental stages. It may take a while to fix out all the bugs and errors that may come along the way. But hey, it’s a nice start, don’t you think?
