Amazon Patents Drone Tower

July 6th 2017

Amazon Box2

Originally filed in late 2015, the patent application describes the concept as a "multi-level fulfillment center designed to accommodate landing and takeoff of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)." In addition, unlike conventional fulfillment warehouses - which are typically located outside of cities where space is available - the new fulfillment center concept is designed to be located in an urban setting, "such as in a densely populated area," allowing quicker delivery.

The new concept is not intended as drone only. The application indicates that it could also support traditional deliveries, including by ground vehicles, as well as self service pick-up.

Externally, the tower concept may include "apertures" - of many possible shapes - to allow authorized UAVs to enter and exit the center. However, the centers would be designed to blend in with other high-rise buildings in the area.

Amazon completed its first successful delivery by drone last December in a small town located near Cambridge, England. According to the company, the "Prime Air" delivery was accomplished in 13 minutes "from click to delivery."
