after much speculation and a sample concept, amazon is finally rolling out their drone delivery system – ‘prime air’. explained by TV show host jeremy clarkson, the future delivery system is designed to safely send packages to customers in 30 minutes or less using self-sufficient small unmanned aerial vehicles. the program has great potential to enhance online shopping services to millions of customers by supplying rapid parcel delivery that will also increase the overall safety and efficiency of the transportation system. amazon says it will take some time to deploy because the federal aviation administration (FAA) is still deciding laws for utilizing autonomous aerial vehicles.
