Ask Donna Dulo: Drone Delivery Service – Is there a Future in This?

May 02, 2017

Donna_DuloIn an article published by The Future of Everything, thought leaders were asked to give their feedback on using drones for delivery service. Amazon’s recent foray into this type of delivery has made the question ever more relevant.

Here’s what our Director of Advanced Computational Technologies, Dr. Donna Dulo, had to say.

Drone deliveries will mature in 2017 and beyond both in technology and in the law. This delivery paradigm is not limited to mail and package delivery.

Niche food delivery will expand with the use of drones. The delivery of emergency medical services will increase, including the rapid delivery of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) to heart attack victims.

The delivery of emergency supplies and the emergency delivery of food, water, and medicine to remote locations will also increase. The delivery of Internet clouds will also begin to become common in 2017, with persistent solar powered drones.

The rapid advancement of precision GPS systems coupled with advances in autonomous technologies and anti-collision systems will make 2017 a landmark year for drone logistics.

Over the next 10-15 years, drones will completely take over the delivery market and the biggest package growth will be humans with drone-powered car services.”
