Amazon.com Inc. has petitioned for a patent to utilize aircrafts to store items and serve as a base for conveyance drones.
The company recorded a patent for the idea that was found by CB Insight’s investigator Zoe Leavitt on Wednesday.
However, there’s one little issue with drone deliveries the way things are: launching drones from the ground and flying them to individuals’ homes requires a lot of energy.
Keeping in mind the end goal to get around this potential issue, Amazon is taking a gander at putting away items at altitude in tremendous floating airships, described by Amazon as “airborne fulfillment centers” and a system of drones to basically float items down to individuals.
The AFCs would hover at around 45,000 feet (13,700 meters) and be restocked and resupplied by “shuttles or littler aircrafts.”
Amazon, which was not instantly accessible for input, has laid out arrangements to begin utilizing drones for conveyances one year from now.
