LOS-ANGELES, November, 13. /TASS/. The world's biggest Internet-retailer Amazon is going to start testing air drones for delivery of parcels in Britain.
Two years after buying the Cambridge startup Evi Technologies, the company turned to looking for engineers and experts who can help with the tests, the Business Insider reported. It is likely that the military specialists will be involved in the tests. The drones will be flying over Cambridge. The date of the start is not yet announced.
The project named Prime Air in future will allow the customers to receive their parcels within 30 minutes after the order confirmation. The Amazon drones will fly at no more than 122 meters high and their total weight will not exceed 25 kilograms. The maximum weight of the parcel will be limited to 2.3 kilograms.
Amazon has already been carrying out tests of delivering goods with drones to its own enterprises in Seattle, Washington. The experts think the realization of this ambitious idea of Jeff Bezos, the company’s head, will take at least 3-5 years.
