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.

The hook orientation is set to unlock. The attached drone can then either enter/exit the rail.

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.
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
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).
