Drones: in Sweden they delivered food.
Sweden has been experimenting with drone food deliveries in some sparsely populated countryside. Drone transportation can be a profitable innovation.
The areas chosen, in Sweden, for the experimentation of drones in food deliveries are Gräddö and Tjockö, on the outskirts of the municipality of Norrtälje. Two small towns on the islands of the northern archipelago, a few kilometers from the capital. A 15-day test to evaluate drone transport: an innovative operation for the benefit of those who live in remote areas. The citizens of these areas have extreme difficulties in making purchases, always forced to move. In practice, it is experimentation of food deliveries with drones in not very populated areas. A brilliant idea to solve these people’s problems.
The drones can carry a payload of around two kilograms for this project. The drones will have a range of about 6 kilometers from the Gräddö supermarket. The project developers hope to have demonstrated that drone food deliveries can be useful for the citizens of these areas. The aim is to reach more and more areas thanks to drones. Then expand the project to a large scale . Here are the realities that will participate in the project. They are the ICAx innovation hub of ICA Gruppen, the main creator, the startup Aerit, Rise and the municipality of Norrtälje. The Swedish innovation agency Vinnova largely financed the whole project.
