I struggle to see how this proposed means of small goods delivery can ever 'take off' The many obvious reasons against its operation are mounting but AmazonUSA are determined to get it underway as soon as possible. The mind boggles......!! TC.
This is a very serious project; it has been in development for some time, and subject to FAA approval (which is expected to be granted) the service could be available to Amazon customers in America sometime in 2015.
The technology is a tried and tested one as far as the delivery drones are concerned, but there are some obvious concerns over safety as far as members of the public are concerned, and With regard to security of the consignments. Those concerns are being addressed at the moment, both by Amazon, and by the FAA.
