Google to test groceries drone delivery in Helsinki

1 min read

The drone branch of the parent company of Google, Alphabet, will test the delivery of groceries with drones. Wing announced this in a blog. The test will take place next month in the Finnish capital Helsinki.

Project Wing has been working for some time on developing drones that can deliver packages and is now testing these drones for the first time in Europe.

During the test, residents of the Vuosaari district can order pastries, meatballs and other snacks. These are then flown in with a drone. During the test, employees of Project Wing talk to the residents to see what could be improved with regard to delivery by drone.

It is not the first time that Project Wing tests delivery by drone. In 2017 there was a test in Australia and people could order medicines and burritos.

Google hopes to be able to replace the car with drones when it comes to delivering packages. The tech giant expects the technology to be used on a large scale in 2025.
