The benefits are quite obvious. Many of the dangers are also, and Amazon isn’t a company that’s normally associated with foolishness, so they can’t really be planning to go all the way with such an endeavor. So, it might just be a simple PR stunt, and the media shouldn’t be such easy prey for free advertising.
Many packages are delivered everyday to homes and offices. If even a small percentage of these packages were delivered by drones, what would happen? Amazon will only be control some of them. So, what about mid-air collisions between drones, kites and balloons. Let’s not forget helicopters, model airplanes and wind turbines. Drones with spinning blades could be dropping out of the sky more frequently than imagined.
Plus, drones are not at all silent. A lot of drones can make a lot of extra ambient noises in the environment, where noise pollution is already high. They’re also quite visible creating another nuisance of visual disturbance.
Kids are known to be mischievous; some adults can be just as mischievous, so can criminals, and in fact, some nosey wrong-doers. You can’t help but wonder what the life expectancy would be of a drone, whether it’s delivering to a house or dropping a package somewhere else. If you were a kid, you probably wouldn’t want the police to have a photo of you, especially if you were donning a mask, catching them, making nets to bring them down, and stringing wires between various buildings catching them on their normal routes.
Well as drones are good fun as toys and for hobbies, they are for home delivery. They are also useful for some utility and emergency service tasks, under supervision. And now it really seems that drones are a really good solution for home delivery. Amazon knows that as well, and thus is investing more in drone home delivery and we should all have a lot of fun with it anyway.
