According to a company press statement:
“The helipad for receiving parcels from drones was designed by 3L Robotics. The solution was tailored for Vlněna office complex, which is to be accomplished by mid-2024, and then it will become the very first building in Central Europe that will be equipped with an automated system for receiving drone shipments. The place for this futuristic and logistic novelty was chosen thanks to a close cooperation between CTP (Czech developer and manager of logistics and industrial real estates), architectural studio Studio acht, and 3L Robotics (company engineering solutions for automated parcel delivery). Even though in the Czech Republic it is not possible to deliver shipments by drones due to current legislation, the construction of delivery points is already being prepared.
“A drone helipad works like a charger for electric cars: in order to make it possible for drones to transport shipments, first of all, it is necessary to create the infrastructure, i.e. delivery points among which the shipments will be transported. This helipad will be the first one in this network,” Luboš Lněnička, the founder of 3L Robotics, said.
“Based on GPS coordinates, the drone with a shipment will arrive above the roof of the building, then it will find the helipad and make a connection. After that, the helipad will verify whether the shipment is the right one, and it will lead the drone to landing. Finally, the shipment will be transported to a part of the building which is accessible for the staff or an autonomous vehicle assigned for the delivery.”
