Toronto-based drone logistics firm Drone Delivery Canada has unveiled the next generation of its Sparrow aircraft. The company says the new drone, which will be commercialized as the Canary, has already passed its first tests successfully.
While the exact numbers will be determined by future testing, the Canary by Drone Delivery Canada is expected to have a range of approximately 20 km and a cargo capacity of 4.5 kg. This aircraft is being equipped with a new motor configuration, next-generation smart battery technology, touchless cargo-drop functionality, a future optional public announcement system, and an optional aircraft parachute.
Drone Delivery Canada says these new functionalities will unlock potential customer use-cases and facilitate flights over people to open new, commercially addressable future markets in urban and residential areas for both B2B and B2C retail residential deliveries.
