The new drone delivery Amazon does not look like it

Souvenez-vous. Il y a exactement deux ans, Amazon dévoilait son programme Amazon Prime Air via lequel il compte un jour livrer les achats de ses clients avec des petites machines volantes. Et aujourd’hui, après s’être battue pour avoir le droit de tester ses drones de livraison dans des conditions réelles (ou presque), l’entreprise a décidé de montrer un nouveau prototype dans un spot publicitaire.

La machine montrée dans la vidéo est assez particulière puisque les drones qu’Amazon a précédemment montrés ressemblaient tous à des hélicoptères à plusieurs hélices. Le nouveau drone, en revanche, est plutôt un avion qui est capable de décoller et d’atterrir verticalement.

Otherwise, according to the video, the drone would be able to travel 24 km. It also evokes obstacle detection technologies used on the device.

You may think that the purpose of Amazon was recalled that the project is not dead yet. However, it should also be recalled in the United States, as everywhere in the world, it is the time of year where people buy most. And as he did two years ago, Amazon released its drones to the buzz.

Moreover, to present the operation of the delivery by drone, Amazon chose Jeremy Clarkson, former presenter of Top Gear. Referred by the BBC, it was recovered by Amazon for a new issue of car-bike.

After, you should know that Amazon is not the only one to go into the delivery drones. In this race, the company Jeff Bezos has rivals like DHL, La Poste and some startups spread all over the world.
