Amazon secures a new patent related to its drone parcel service


As we have seen for quite some time, despite the limitations in terms of tests that it has Amazon about its Prime Air program, which is developing a system of parcel delivery with dronesThe truth is that the company continues to try to solve all kinds of problems related to this, at least until a regulation that regulates this type of services is ratified and the program can be launched.

On this occasion we have to talk about a new patent requested by Amazon, the same one in which it is now proposed, perhaps to solve the problem that in many areas their drones will not be able to land on the mainland due to different impediments, which they do the delivery from the air so that the packages are the ones that land in a certain place by means of a series of parachutes.

Despite what many thought, with this patent Amazon shows us that its Prime Air program is still very much alive

Contrary to what you can imagine or is shown in the image that is located right at the top of this same entry, Amazon will not use parachutes as such, but rather they have developed a system composed of a kind of fabric that surrounds the package and who would be in charge of stop the fall of it before crashing.

As has been expressed from Amazon, the idea with this patent is to go one step further in terms of the safety of the drone itself, with this system the autonomous aerial vehicle would not have to land, thus preventing someone from landing. steal the drone while largely avoiding all that noise pollution for which many already raise the cry.
