Thursday, October 12th, 2017

The London Assembly Transport Committee has been exploring the “potential scale, benefits and risks of using drone and droid technology for deliveries in London”.

In a meeting held on Tuesday (1o October), the Committee members mulled over questions such as whether drone deliveries can viable in built-up urban areas; and if drones and land-based have the potential to take freight traffic off London’s roads.

Panelists giving evidence at the meeting included: Henry Harris-Burland, Vice-President for Marketing, Starship Technologies; Professor Alan McKinnon, Keuhne Logistics University, Hamburg (via Skype); Tony Henley, Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS); Michael Hurwitz, Director of Transport Innovation, Transport for London; and Lauren Sager Weinstein, Chief Data Officer, Transport for London.
