Drones and robots are going to be used to deliver packages in the future. A bunch of companies are already working on these ideas. UPS has already successfully tested a drone launch from the top of a delivery truck. The test was conducted in collaboration with Workhorse. By sending drones from delivery trucks, UPS is hoping to improve efficiency.
The drone can make delivery at one location while the driver attempts another. This approach could prove particularly effective in rural areas. UPS drones fly autonomously and redock at the new location. Pretty exciting, don’t you think?
