Amazon to begin making drone deliveries in “the coming months” as it unveils new high-tech vehicles

Amazon said it is set to begin making drone deliveries “in the coming months” as it unveiled its latest high-tech Prime Air delivery drone. At its Re:MARS conference in Las Vegas, in which the online retailer showcases its latest technological innovations, Amazon unveiled its new six-rotor delivery drone.

The hybrid aircraft is capable of vertical take-off and landing, as well as sustained forward flight, and uses a combination of data from visual, thermal and ultrasonic sensors to autonomously navigate.

It is also capable of transporting 2.3kg packages up to 15 miles, meeting the retailer’s ambitions of creating “fully electric drones that can fly up to 15 miles and deliver packages under five pounds to customers in less than 30 minutes.”
