Amazon Prime Air service passes first test

476 0

Amazon, in a bid to keep ahead of the competition, has begun its commercial trial run of its Prime Air autonomous drone delivery service. Its first test was in Cambridge, England and the first delivery took just 13 minutes from the moment the customer placed the order until arrival of the package.

Amazon has said it will expand the trial to a few more customers and then jump to a few hundred, baring no complications arising. It is worth noting that any customers chosen must be in range of the Cambridge warehouse.

The Prime Air service was announced back in 2013 as a tease to gauge crowd interest and after seeing favourable responses, Amazon decided to invest heavily in the initiative.

A video of the first test can be found below.
