Entregas com drones: O quão próximos estamos dessa realidade?

Sem categoria

Making everyday tasks faster and easier is definitely one of the biggest advantages that technology has brought to the world. As much as implementing new technologies isn?t a simple concept, as soon as they become a reality and we grow accustomed to them, it?s hard to imagine completing the same tasks without their assistance.

Pode ser esse o caso dos drones?

Os benefícios

Drones can offer faster deliveries since they won?t have to face lines of traffic on the airspace. In addition to that, they can reach trickier areas that a conventional vehicle would not be able to.

Since they?re not moved by fuel, they are a more environmentally friendly alternative and, as much as they would still need an operator, the fuel money that is saved makes drones a cheaper delivery mode as well.

Eles já são uma realidade, então tudo o que precisaríamos fazer é adaptá-los para serem capazes de atender demandas reais de entregas, como aguentar mais peso e viajar maiores distâncias.

As limitações

As leis que envolvem o uso de drones podem ser consideradas uma das maiores razões pela qual a implementação deles no nosso modelo atual de entregas está acontecendo tão devagar.

Primeiramente, as regras são diferentes de região para região sobre o quão alto drones podem voar, o quão grande eles podem ser e o quão longe de seus pilotos eles podem ir. Em alguns lugares, drones não são sequer permitidos. Além disso, os requisitos para pilotos de drone serem autorizados a pilotar profissionalmente não são os mesmos em todos os lugares.

There are security issues that need to be taken into account as well, since drones would be flying above people?s heads carrying packages and any mistakes committed by the operator or any connection errors could cause the packages to be dropped or the drones to collide.

Mas até mesmo com esses contrapontos ao seu uso, especialistas projetam que os drones terão um papel maior nas nossas operações logísticas daqui cinco a oito anos, devido ao fato de que, por mais que suas limitações sejam consideráveis, elas valem a pena ser superadas quando consideramos os benefícios.
