Google Will Reportedly Roll Out a Drone Delivery Network in a Year

Google is one of the biggest tech corporations on the surface of the planet, and that is thanks in large part to the company’s ability to dip its fingers into a variety of different pots. The tech juggernaut is mostly known for its search engine, web browser and the Android smartphone OS, but in spite of the fact that this is the case it has a bunch of other projects in the work that could come into fruition sooner than you might think.

One of the latest announcements made by Google was that it owns a subsidiary which plans on making drone delivery more prominent than might have been the case otherwise. With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that this subsidiary goes by the name of Wing, and it plans on incorporating millions of drones into the network.

What’s more, Google isn’t wasting any time rolling out this revolutionary next chapter in the story of its success. According to the CEO of Wing, Adam Woodworth, the company plans to have its drone delivery network up and running in the span of just 12 months with all things having been considered and taken into account.

Drone delivery could be a game changer because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up making Google a major player in the world of ecommerce. Wing is already attempting to test out its drone delivery network in Ireland, and they plan to expand testing to the UK as well once the regulatory authorities grant them the appropriate permissions.

According to Woodworth, Wing will not operate as a transportation system in the classic way. Rather, it will treat its service as a data network. Efficiency will be incorporated based on this way of viewing things. Google might not be the only player in the drone race, but it will likely end up coming out on top if the timeline ends up being the least bit accurate or at least if it doesn’t get delayed too much.
