German startup Wingcopter had launched a new autonomous delivery drone designed to remove a technical bottleneck hindering the growth of drone transport services. The latest addition, revealed on Tuesday, is capable of creating three separate deliveries per flight. Wingcopter was founded back in 2017, and started with the manufacturing of drones, and has now evolved in becoming a company launching logistical highways in the sky. It used the acquired revenue to scale and expand its business model to include drone delivery as a service.
“The company’s website is now promoting the delivery business, which aims to provide healthcare, e-commerce, and grocery delivery, among other services. Its ultimate aim is to create “logistical highways in the sky,” according to a statement by Plümmer.
Plummer who has been in the business for four years now explained that the tilt-rotors can automatically respond to gusts of winds and other inclement weather conditions. The fabricated design of the new model includes eight motors for redundancy and safety reasons. The company has primitively focused on getting the safety measures right to avoid any mishappening once the drone offsets in the sky.
