Drone Delivery: Google’s Project Wing Takes Off In Australia
From the distance comes a high-pitched whining. It sounds horrible, like a giant mosquito. Or maybe a herd of angry mice screaming in a wind tunnel. It is in fact a flying burrito. And it’s flying courtesy of Wing’s ambitious drone delivery program.
That’s right: Google/Alphabet’ Project Wing has been given the green light to turn its drone delivery trials in Canberra, Australia, into a fully-fledged service that’s open to the public.
Heathrow Drone Protest Underway, Air Traffic Unaffected
Last month we reported that a group of environmental activists in London were planning to exploit a safety loophole at Heathrow airport, grounding flights as part of a protest against the airport’s proposed expansion.
To do this, the intention was to fly multiple drones at head height but within the airport’s restricted airspace. This, the activists claimed, would require the airport to suspend flights, despite no direct threat to manned operations being present.
The protest began in the early hours of Friday morning. Between 50 to 200 people are intending to fly toy drones simultaneously across the next few days. The situation is still unfolding, but at the time of writing, there have been 3 attempted flights – at least one successful – and a total of 10 arrests so far.
