Here’s an interesting question: What channel (Google, Amazon, or others) will be the first drone most consumers encounter in a delivery context? Google could offer smaller players, such as local business, access to drone services.
The Project Wing drone delivery service, which was conceptualized inside Google’s experimental labs, will be tested at one of the FAA drone test sites. The announcement did not specify which test site will be chosen. This is all part of a new push by the US National Science Foundation, which is spending over $35 million on drone research and testing over the next five years.
