Search engine giant Google has finally tested its autonomous aerial vehicles, which would be used to deliver products.
Concept of Delivery Drones
The company’s one of the most technologically advanced projects is called “Project Wing.”
Google X, the company’s research division dedicated to making major technological advancements, built and tested drones near remote farms in Queensland earlier this month.
The company believes Project Wing could be helpful to life-saving missions.
Google said Project Wing’s goal is to build a system for delivering aid to victims of floods, earthquakes, and other extreme weather events.
“When you have a tool like this you can really allow the operators of those emergency services to add an entirely new dimension to the set of tools and solutions that they can think of,” said Dave Voss, the incoming leader of Project Wing.
“Even just a few of these, being able to shuttle nearly continuously could service a very large number of people in an emergency situation,” explained Astro Teller, Captain of Moonshots.
