Are We Witnessing a Breakthrough for Consumer Drone Deliveries?
After many years of talk about the potential value of having products delivered via drone, real progress was made over the past 18 months as drones were used to support the delivery of everything from medical supplies to organs to disaster relief materials. We’ll explore the practical impact of these new developments and will then discuss what technologies and regulatory changes we’ll need to take them to the next level. Additionally, presenters will detail a realistic ROI needed for different types of deliveries as well as what opportunities exist for drone delivery in the short and long-term.
