In the future, drones will be used to deliver all kinds of things. We have already covered many companies working to perfect the technology. The Matternet Station is an automated system with the M2 Drone and Matternet’s cloud platform to make sending and receiving packages easier.

In March 2017, Matternet became the first company in the world to receive authorization for full operations of drone logistics networks over densely populated areas in Switzerland.

The station has a footprint of 2 square meters. It can be installed on the ground or rooftop locations. When a drone lands, it is locked in place and has its battery and payload swapped. This video shows what the Matternet Station is all about:
