FEATURES

The Drone Tracks system is carefully designed with safety in mind. Read below to see how our tracks are designed and the benefits to these features. 

TRACK DESIGN

Benefits

Safety

Drones are required to use a hook attachment on the tracks. The hook can only be disengaged from the track when set in the unlock position (which requires the drone to fly upward a bit and rotate).

By having drones “stuck” inside the rail, they can’t crash into you during a malfunction or a very windy day.

Other systems are testing out parachutes, but had to stop testing when the parachutes were sliced off by the drone’s propellers.

The system provides electricity to the drones and their batteries. A drone can charge its battery while using the tracks.

Another option is for the system to power the hook attachments, which transport the drones around the tracks.

DISTANCE

LOWER NOISE LEVEL

Drones were originally named after the buzzing sounds of the bees. The buzzing sound of a drone comes from the propellers, which are constantly spinning to maintain lift and for movement. 

The system lessens the need for the constant buzzing of a drone with the hook attachment: drones end up resting their weight on the rails and don’t need to worry about keeping airborne.

When the hooks drive the drones around the track system, propellers won’t need to be used at all until the drone needs to disengage from the rail.

Drones on our tracks aren’t flying through your backyard, they’re traveling on set pathways near the streets.

Similar to roads, the tracks regulate traffic.

So that unknown drone right outside your home shouldn’t have an excuse to be there.

ORGANIZED FLIGHT PATHS

Consistently Quick delivery

AI and machine learning allow the system to figure out the travel time a package should take to get to you or a customer. So your dinner isn’t lukewarm and that ice cream isn’t half melted.

Having no human controller means fewer chances for errors and crashes. The system can control or direct the drones. Drones won’t need collision avoidance programming to avoid crashing into people, buildings, drones, planes, etc.

With this, cameras can be optional (hello privacy).

FULLY AUTONOMOUS

ECO-FRIENDLY

So long cardboard box pile.  Instead, we’re opting for reusable containers. Customers can take their delivered items and send the drone back with the empty container or items they want to return. Because of the electrified tracks, heated and cooled containers allow you to order fresh groceries or food delivery.

“80 – 90% of delivery drivers’ time in urban area is spent on foot”: which means the driver is looking for a person in a building while their truck may be double-parked on a busy street; leading to more traffic congestion. The drones and tracks don’t take up street space and they run off of electricity, not gasoline. Optimally, the electricity will be sourced by renewable resources (wind, solar, etc).

No shipping minimum.  Shipping costs less than a $1.

LOW COST DELIVERY

CUSTOMER-BASED SCHEDULE DELIVERY
WITH PICKUP VERIFICATION

Porch pirates and thieving package delivery people can’t steal packages from the front of the house anymore.

Instead of being at the mercy of the delivery person’s schedule, customers schedule the time for their deliveries (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) and verify that they actually received it.
