A2Z Drone Delivery is aiming to develop a minimally-invasive approach to implement safe and efficient pickup and delivery for urban areas through its patented freefall delivery mechanism.
According to a 25 June press release: “A2Z recognizes the serious privacy and noise concerns linked to traditional drone deliveries and tackles these issues by stationing its drones more than 300 ft. above ground throughout the entire pickup and delivery process.”
“The current landscape of the drone industry has many major and competitive players such as Amazon, Google, UPS etc. However, all of these companies have faced the same complaints of breached privacy and safety concerns. Our research at A2Z continues to focus on the development of the safest technologies that can be implemented seamlessly into society while addressing these important concerns,” says Founder of A2Z, Aaron Zhang.
A2Z Drone Delivery currently specializes in the delivery of 5 lb. of small items from 400 ft. Its freefall delivery mechanism is patent-protected along with further developments on its ICE flight platform to allow for longer flight times and higher payload capacities, which is currently patent-pending.
