Delivery drones aren’t a new idea, it’s a topic that I’ve covered at length on this blog, and it seems like everyone from Google to DHL has a solution. That doesn’t seem to be stopping the constant flow of entrepreneurs like Don Shaw, CEO of Advanced Tactics Inc., from developing their own delivery drone solutions.
Introducing the AT Panther, a delivery drone from Advanced Tactics:
Don Shaw, CEO of Advanced Tactics Inc. (AT), that has been a research and rapid development company in Southern California for the last 10 years, announces today that the first aerial package delivery test with a safe drive-up-to-your-doorstep capability video of the AT Panther Air/Ground Robot is now released to the public.
This video shows that AT has successfully completed their first aerial package delivery test with a flying drone that can land with up to a 5-pound in weight package and safely drive up to the door with no propellers turning to deliver a package to the doorstep of a customer. It is believed this is the first successful test of its kind. This vehicle is called the AT Panther Small Unmanned Aircraft System (sUAS) VTOL Air/Ground Robot.
Want to see the AT Panther in action?
Now maybe it’s just me, but the AT Panther seems a bit awkward both in terms of industrial design and mobility. Will that hamper the AT Panther? Only time will tell.
