Cleveron unveils “safe drone delivery” solution
Cleveron, the Estonia-based company that has developed the PackRobot parcel machine, has now introduced what it describes as a “safe drone delivery” solution. In a statement sent to Post&Parcel, Cleveron said: “Today’s well-known solutions for drone delivery are not safe enough. They are all very similar to one another and parcels are simply dropped on the ground from drones, for example Amazon drone delivery. This solution includes a huge safety problem for people, especially for kids and pets playing next to the landing place.
“Cleveron has developed a safe drone delivery that solves the problem.”
The company has posted a short video on youtube which demonstrates its safe drone delivery solution. Essentially, the drone makes the delivery into a parcel reception unit which means it does not have to come down to ground level (and potentially come into contact with people).
The parcel is also be kept in a secure receptacle (rather like a parcel locker) until the receiver is ready to collect it.
