Amazon Building Self-destructing Drones

News December 1, 2017

With the increase use of autonomous drones, authorities are looking at ways to combat the rise of accidents that will go with it. Amazon is a company that will heavily rely on this technology as it transitions to delivering goods to customers using autonomous drones.

Amazon recently patented a self-destructing drone that will be their answer to mitigate the risk of autonomous drone delivery service.

The patent indicates that “During the fragmentation sequence, one or more parts or components of the UAV [unmanned aerial vehicle] can be released. In doing so, the weight, speed, air drag coefficient, and other factors related to the UAV can be altered.”

Basically the drone will set a bunch of small explosives to make the objects turn to dust in the mid air so when it lands it doesn’t cause harm.

If this is the case, the Amazon drone would be the most expensive drone there is because the materials have to be build in special materials that is combustible.

But what happens to the package that the drone is carrying? Is Amazon planning to blow that up too should there be failure during flight?
