So, the world of online shopping delivery is starting to change. Overall it seems to be a change that can definitely impact the current global warming crisis we are facing. By 2020, we might be getting our packages from online vendors like; Amazon, eBay, or even Walmart from drone programs. There are a few companies that have started researching and developing these innovative ways of getting your package ASAP. First off, these drone programs will effectively eliminate 50% of our current greenhouse gas emissions. Sure, the diesel engine market will shrink but it will be replaced with drone manufacturing and operators. Elroy Air, Nautilus, and Saber Drone are currently the lead developing companies in this field and they make all kinds of drones in all kinds of different shapes and sizes. Some of these testing drones are the size of stealth bombers and will be used to deliver large shipments to either consumer or to distributors from the manufacturer. Nautilus has designed their drones using boat measurements as they plan to take off from sea and land at sea as well. They are doing this to avoid a lot of the landlocked states’ commercial air traffic. These drones will have to land to load up with packages but they will also have to charge too. We think it would be interesting if they could avoid the nonoperating time of these drones by using little solar panels on top of the drones to charge mid-flight. There are a lot of positive things coming from drone delivery, but people still have concerns. What about privacy or the possibility of a security breach in these drones? Sure, privacy is kind of dead now, but some people still believe they have some privacy. Ignorance is bliss, right? All we can do is really speculate how bad a security breach could be and it seems a little wrong to compare them to other terrorist attacks around the U.S. Overall, we believe the use of drones for delivery can be beneficial for not only the business owners but for the consumer as well.
