 Amazon testing delivery with drones

"Amazon's delivery drones"

UPS, FedEx and the U.S. Postal Service will be working overtime to make sure you get your holiday gifts on time, but if CEO Jeff Bezos gets his way, in the future, it might be delivery drones working those extra hours.60 Minutes team had no idea that Bezos was going to reveal the delivery-by-drone project during their visit to Amazon's offices.
Something the team has been working on in our next generation R&D lab.
The goal of this new delivery system is to get packages into customers' hands in 30 minutes or less using unmanned aerial vehicles.Also known as octocopters, will pick up packages in small yellow buckets at Amazon's fulfillment centers and fly through the air to deliver items to customers after they hit the buy button online.
The goal of the new delivery system is to get packages into customers' hands in 40 minutes , the world's largest Internet retailer said. Putting Prime Air into commercial use will take "some number of years" as Amazon develops the technology further and waits for the Federal Aviation Administration to come up with rules and regulations, the company added.
Putting Prime Air into commercial use will take some number of years as we advance the technology and wait for the necessary FAA rules and regulations.
FAA is actively working on rules and an approach for unmanned aerial vehicles that will prioritize public safety. Safety will be our top priority, and our vehicles will be built with multiple redundancies and designed to commercial aviation standards.
