Officials in Dubai say the city is experimenting with drones to deliver government documents to citizens. Unveiled this week, the program is the first phase of what officials hope will lead to widespread government use of unmanned aircraft across the United Arab Emirates by next year.
“What these things are best suited for is delivery of small, light value things that are time sensitive, like medicines, identification documents, vital papers and things of that nature,” said Noah Raford, an adviser to UAE Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, according to The National. The drones would supposedly use retina scans and fingerprints to identify intended recipients.
The project shows that Amazon’s plan to deliver packages by drones isn’t completely beyond the realm of possibility. But Dubai operations will be significantly simpler than what Amazon would have to tackle in order to replace good old-fashioned truck delivery.
