Amazon announced it will have drone delivery within a month.
Amazon said Wednesday that it plans to use self-piloted drones to deliver packages to shoppersâ€™ home in the coming months.
The online shopping giant did not give exact timing or say where the drones will be making deliveries.
Amazon said its new drones use computer vision and machine learning to detect and avoid people or clotheslines in backyards when landing.
â€œFrom paragliders to power lines to a corgi in the backyard, the brain of the drone has safety covered,â€ said Jeff Wilke, who oversees Amazonâ€™s retail business.
Wilke said the drones are fully electric, can fly up to 15 miles (24 kilometers), deliver in 30 minutes and carry goods that weigh up to 5 pounds (2.3 kilograms), like a paperback or toothpaste.
Here is the quote from Wilke:
â€œWe expect to do it within months,â€ he said
In 2013 Jeff Bezos predicted that Amazon would be doing Drone delivery in 5 years. He was slightly off on that timeline but it was only by a year or so. This is obviously still in the beginner stage. The drones can only fly 15 miles and hold up to 5 pounds. It will be interesting to see how well the drones hold up once they are put into the real world.
