Van and drone deliveries tested in real life
The deliveries, which took place between 25 September and 13 October, were a test for on-demand delivery of e-commerce orders.
A total of around 100 flights were made without incident over the city of Zurich. The project made use of two drones and two Mercedes-Benz Vito vans with integrated landing platforms. Technology installed in the vehicle roofs ensured that landings were accurate and safe.
The results of the tests are currently being analysed.
