Wing is arranged public educational community events to resolve the doubts regarding the drone delivery system.
Google’s parent company Alphabet will be delivering food through its subsidiary company Wing in Helsinki, Finland soon. The deliveries will be made in the city’s Vuosaari district to residents who place orders through Herkku Food Market and Café Monami. The company will be delivering the number of food items including pastries, snacks, and meatballs. This will be a pilot project to test the delivery of food through drones. Alphabet has partnered with Herkku Food Market, which is a gourmet supermarket and Café Monami. Along with snacks and pastries, movie combo popcorn, candy, two-person lasagna meal, soda, chicken Caesar salad will be delivered.
When Wing first made the announcement to launch a trial in Finland, it said delivery flights will cover an area of maximum 10 km with packages weighing 1.5 kg or less. The expected delivery time will be around 10 minutes. Wing has been running several test flights since that announcement in Teisko, a municipality north of Helsinki. Wing drones are tested for harsh weather and difficult conditions.
According to the company, many residents have shown interest in getting deliveries via drones. The drone deliveries would be an appropriate solution to deliver food in remote places and within time. There will be educational community events in the coming weeks where people can learn about these drone delivery services and ask questions. Alphabet praised Helsinki and its residents for giving a warm welcome to the company drone delivery system.
