Drones could deliver your next package

Switzerland has undergone testing for drones to deliver parcels this week. Switzerland Postal Service plans to run these tests of drones delivering roughly 2 pounds maximum parcels in a 6 mile radius for about a month.

Drones delivering parcels isn’t ready yet for commercial use, but in another five years or so, officials say it will be possible. The tests being run by Swiss Post have the drones on an autonomous flight path with pre-programmed routes on the cloud. These tests are said to help understand the limitations of the drones and whether they are primed and ready to be used extensively in 5 more years.

Swiss Post sees aerial drone delivery mainly being used for hard to reach areas and time sensitive parcels.
