Project Wing delivery drones get the green light


It’s been talked about for some time and now drone delivery becomes a reality as Project Wing can finally take off! Google have been trialling drone deliveries in Canberra for the last 12 months, delivering burritos, medication and coffee (an interesting mix). This world first in commercial air delivery, is just the start of things to come and opens up so many opportunities for faster deliveries.

Faster deliveries are the ‘holy grail’ that online retailers aspire to as it gives them a competitive advantage in getting their products to consumers rapidly. However, does this innovation spell the end to courier deliveries and are we now going to be inundated with pesky drones and the noise they make?

In this second interview on this topic, Roger talks to Jason Jordan from Curtin FM about the introduction of drone deliveries and the potential impact, including jobs.
