Wing offers a peek of its drone delivery remote command centers
Alphabet-owned drone delivery company Wing is lifting the veil on how it gets orders from retail and food company partners to clients faster than ground transport options with a peek into how its cutting-edge remote control centers function.
The main takeaway from that may not come as a shocker to savvy DroneDJ readers, but will probably update the general public’s mental images of what that sort of aerial operation involves. Contrary to past UAV activities, Wing delivery drones aren’t being piloted by a corresponding number of people standing around with their thumbs on controller sticks, but are instead monitored in centralized centers as they autonomously carry out their missions.
Moreover, flight observers in Wing’s two US oversight facilities keep watch on drones on delivery runs anywhere across the US, as craft feed flight data into the central control system.
