  • Drone delivery takes off in China

(10 Nov 2016) FOR CLEAN VERSION SEE STORY NUMBER: 4065304 LEAD IN: Chinese retailers are investing heavily in drone delivery systems as a way to access millions of customers in the country's rural areas. A surge in e-commerce has seen demand for online shopping deliveries increase. But poor road infrastructure in China's more remote provinces makes sending products by air a more attractive option. STORY-LINE: A delivery drone takes off, gripping its precious cargo. The Beijing-based e-commerce giant JD.com recently unveiled a fleet of 30 drones. Developed via its in-house drone team called JDX, the drone delivery program has so far licensed more than 30 flight routes in four different bases: Beijing, Jiangsu province near Shanghai, Shaanxi province in northern China, and Sichuan province. Since China's Air Force controls the air space, JD.com is leasing the drone flight routes from the government on an annual basis and has to notify officials for each flight. When a rural customer orders goods online, it is flagged when it is suitable for drone delivery. Once it reaches the delivery station, a team fixes it to a drone that will follow a fixed route that will avoid populated areas, highways and signal towers. Cui Zhang, a senior engineer at JDX, says it cuts the delivery time. "We can reduce the delivery time by half compared with traditional delivery methods like cars or motorbikes. It is also very cost effective. The cost of urban delivery is about 1/5th of the cost of rural delivery in big cities. We hope to use drones to reduce costs dramatically," he says. The trial drones that JD.com have been using have a maximum load weight of 15kg. Most can travel 10km in one trip. During a recent flight test with the media, the model used, called M-TC2, was able to travel at a maximum speed of 100km/h. The drone hovers above a designated area in the destination village, drops the parcel down and leaves immediately after. Fragile items are not suitable for drone delivery. A designated "village promoter" then collects it and delivers it to the villager. Gao Hui, a part-time "village promoter" for JD.com: "Delivering parcels to the village is very time consuming because it is far and the roads are in poor conditions," says Gao Hui on his way to deliver the parcel of tissues. "Drones are different, they can directly fly to the village and I can pick up the parcel and delivery directly to the customer. You save a lot of time," he adds. Andy Mok, an analyst at Red Pagoda Resources, calls the drone deliveries a potential game changer because the market, of 600 million people, is enormous. "By using drones, companies like JD.com have the potential to leapfrog the need for road investments by governments to immediately access this large and growing market," he says. Village promoters also help villagers, who often do not own a computer or are not familiar enough with the world of e-commerce, to place orders. Sheng Ma, a 30-year-old villager, ordered several boxes of tissues in the morning from JD.com. A few hours later, they were in his hands, after a drone had flown a few kilometres through the Jiangsu province countryside to deliver the goods. He was playing outside with his one-year-old son when Gao Hui delivered his order. He is impressed with the speed of delivery. "Before, for example, if you ordered today, it would only arrive tomorrow. Now, if you order at 9 am for example, it will arrive in the afternoon" he says. The project is currently in a trial phase and expected to be expanded next year.

Want same day package delivery service? Keep a look out for a drone to drop it at your front door. Drone delivery is about to get real! Just a few years ago drone delivery seemed like a thing of the distant future. Not anymore. A company in Ohio, called Workhorse Group is testing package deliveries using drones...but there’s a small twist. The drone comes out of the top of an electric delivery truck. After each delivery the drone returns to the truck for its next package. Martin Rucidlo, President of the Workhorse Group said, “The least expensive way to deliver a package would be utilizing a drone, it’s pennies in terms of cost per mile.” A driver programs the drone with an address. Using GPS, it flies to a safe altitude, drops the package within eighteen inches of the ground, usually near the front door. Then takes itself back to the delivery truck. “The driver of the truck has moved on to the next location and now the drone re-docks with the truck at a distant location that is where they are making the next delivery,” Rucidlo said. The drone delivers packages in rural areas, usually traveling distances of about one to two miles. “We envision working for maybe for 10% of the packages, you’re typically delivering 100 packages a day, ten of them will be utilizing the UAS truck delivery system,” he said. The UAS – or unmanned aerial system – can carry packages up to ten pounds, and it’s durable enough to fly in rain or snow. “There’s limitations, you can’t fly them in severe wind,” said Rucidlo. Afraid someone or something – a dog or curious child -- will get in the way of your delivery? The driver is still in charge. “Someone can see that your son is out and will stop the drone from descending at that point via a camera,” he said. The drones are still being tested, and the FAA needs to finalize rules for flying commercial drones – but the future of drone delivery could be just outside your door. “It also allows you to get to what I will call next hour, or one-hour delivery. We have standard delivery, then we have two-day, and then we have next day and then we would have same day, and then we believe one hour. And the only way you’re going to get there, we believe, is with a drone,” said Rucidlo.

UPS announced that it has successfully tested a drone that launches from the top of a UPS® package car, autonomously delivers a package to a home and then returns to the vehicle while the delivery driver continues along the route to make a separate delivery. Get More Great Car Videos - Subscribe: https://goo.gl/BSIaFc UPS conducted the test on Monday in Lithia, Fla. with Workhorse Group (NASDAQ: WKHS), an Ohio-based battery-electric truck and drone developer. Workhorse built the drone and the electric UPS package car used in the test. “This test is different than anything we’ve done with drones so far. It has implications for future deliveries, especially in rural locations where our package cars often have to travel miles to make a single delivery,” said Mark Wallace, UPS senior vice president of global engineering and sustainability. “Imagine a triangular delivery route where the stops are miles apart by road. Sending a drone from a package car to make just one of those deliveries can reduce costly miles driven. This is a big step toward bolstering efficiency in our network and reducing our emissions at the same time.” With ORION, UPS’s On-Road Integrated Optimization Navigation routing software, a reduction of just one mile per driver per day over one year can save UPS up to $50 million. UPS has about 66,000 delivery drivers on the road each day. Rural delivery routes are the most expensive to serve due to the time and vehicle expenses required to complete each delivery. In this test, the drone made one delivery while the driver continued down the road to make another. This is a possible role UPS envisions for drones in the future. “Drivers are the face of our company, and that won’t change,” Wallace said. “What’s exciting is the potential for drones to aid drivers at various points along their routes, helping them save time and deliver on increasing customer service needs that stem from the growth of e-commerce.” The drone used in Monday’s test was the Workhorse HorseFly™ UAV Delivery system. It is a high-efficiency, octocopter delivery drone that is fully integrated with Workhorse’s line of electric/hybrid delivery trucks. The drone docks on the roof of the delivery truck. A cage suspended beneath the drone, extends through a hatch into the truck. A UPS driver inside loads a package into the cage and presses a button on a touch screen, sending the drone on a preset autonomous route to an address. The battery-powered HorseFly drone recharges while it’s docked. It has a 30-minute flight time and can carry a package weighing up to 10 pounds. For this test, Workhorse preset the route for the drone. But in the future, routes could be determined by UPS’s On-Road Integrated Optimization and Navigation (ORION), which is the company’s proprietary routing software. “It’s wonderful to see this technology applied in such a practical way,” said Stephen Burns, Workhorse founder and CEO. “The drone is fully autonomous. It doesn’t require a pilot. So the delivery driver is free to make other deliveries while the drone is away.” UPS has been testing automation and robotics technologies, including drones, for years. Last September, UPS staged a mock delivery of urgently needed medicine from Beverly, Mass. to an island three miles off the Atlantic coast. Additionally, UPS is using drones extensively for humanitarian relief, partnering with third-party organizations to deliver life-saving blood and vaccines to hard-to-reach locations in Rwanda. UPS also is utilizing drones to check inventory on high storage shelves in its warehouses. Unlike all of the previous tests, the most recent UPS drone test shows how drones might assist in making non-urgent residential deliveries as part of the day-to-day operation. Last year, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued small unmanned aircraft systems rules that allow for some commercial use of drones and paved the way for future expanded applications. UPS was one of 35 selected from a cross section of key stakeholders to serve on the FAA’s drone advisory committee. The committee will provide the FAA recommendations on key drone integration issues that will ultimately allow for safe and secure operations of drones within the National Air Space System.

Follows both a city and a rural mailman on their appointed rounds and explains graphically to children how postmen sort mail and deliver it. Also the great social responsibility of Uncle Sam's letter carriers." Reupload of a previously uploaded film with improved video & sound. Public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mail_carrier A mail carrier, mailman, postal carrier, postman, postwoman (US), postman/postwoman (UK), letter carrier (in American English) or postie (in Australia, New Zealand) is an employee of the post office or postal service, who delivers mail and parcel post to residences and businesses. The term "mail carrier" came to be used as a gender-neutral substitute for "mailman" soon after women began performing the job. In the Royal Mail, the official name changed from "letter carrier" to "postman" in 1883, and "postwoman" has also been used for many years... United States In the United States, the official label for a mail carrier is "letter carrier". There are three types of letter carriers: city letter carriers, who are represented by the National Association of Letter Carriers; Rural Letter Carrier, who are represented by the National Rural Letter Carriers' Association; and Highway Contract Route carriers, who are independent contractors. While union membership is voluntary, city carriers are organized near 100% nationally. City carriers are paid hourly with the potential for overtime. City Carriers are also subject to "pivoting" on a daily basis. Pivoting (when a Carrier's assigned route will take less than 8 hours to complete, management may "pivot" said Carrier to work on another route to fill that Carrier up to 8 hours.) is a tool postal management uses to redistribute and eliminate overtime costs, based on consultation with the Carrier about his/her estimated workload for the day and mail volume projections from the DOIS (Delivery Operations Information System) computer program. City Carrier routes are adjusted and/ or eliminated based on information (length, time, and overall workload) also controlled by this program, consultations with the Carrier assigned to the route, and a current PS Form 3999 (street observation by a Postal supervisor to determine accurate times spent on actual delivery of mail)... Rural carriers are under a form of salary called "evaluated hours", usually with overtime built in to their pay. The evaluated hours are created by having all mail counted for a period of two or four weeks, and a formula used to create the set dollar amount they will be paid for each day worked until the next time the route is counted... City letter carriers typically work urban routes that are high density and low mileage. These routes are classified as either "mounted" routes (for those that require a vehicle) or "walking" routes (for those that are done on foot). When working a mounted route, city letter carriers usually drive distinctive white vans with the logo of the United States Postal Service on the side and deliver to curbside and building affixed mailboxes. Carriers who walk generally also drive postal vehicles to their routes, park at a specified location, and carry one "loop" of mail, up one side of the street and back down the other side, until they are back to their vehicle. This method of delivery is referred to as "park and loop"... Rural letter carriers typically work routes that have a lower density and higher mileage than those of city letter carriers. They all work mounted routes, leaving their vehicles only to deliver to group mailboxes or to deliver an article that must be taken to a customer's door... Rural letter carriers often use their own vehicles and are not required to wear a uniform... Highway Contract Route carriers work routes that were established with a density of less than one customer per mile driven (some later grow denser, and can then be converted to rural delivery). They are only mounted routes, and all HCR carriers use their own vehicle. These routes are typically found in outlying areas, or around very small communities...
