Over at Pigeon Post Systems were are in the process of setting up an open standards platform for a fully automated package delivery system.

Check out www.pigeonpost.co for more details but the question I'm asking here is:

Any existing UAV projects or systems used to deliver physical packages?

(I know about the uav tower building project but as that was a closed internal system it's not really what I'm looking for.)

  • We have just finished the latest version of our ProDropper system. 4-8S input, 12V DC output (for search light), UAVCAN and PWM control options. Achieved 40kg on the bench.

    Side by side with Andreas' standard EPM. Ours is on the left.

  • I am curious as to what the litigation will look like for accidents. This to me is the biggest issue (not the tech)

  • Hi there,

    I've been working through an algorithm for accurate ultrasonic autolanding. I've published it here:

    The next step would be a PCB which interfaces to the Pixhawk through a SPI or similiar, some firmware, and some additional code in the Pixhawk system.

    The cost of the landing pad would be very low as most of the electronics is in the quadcopter, so I hope it would be suitable for Pigeon Post, Matternet, Flying Donkey, etc.

    Regards, Stuart

  • have a look at our OpenRelief project based out of UK and Japan. We are building a number of payload carrying Drones.

  • is this legal?  I thought commercial UAS uses were illegal
