Flirtey, 7-Eleven Make Weekend Store-to-Home Drone Deliveries
Flirtey and 7-Eleven have completed a month of store-to-home UAV delivery in 12 homes in Reno, Nevada. According to the announcement, the 77-year unmanned aircraft was delivered at the weekend, about 20 per week, delivering unmanned aerial vehicles flying autonomously using GPS to local customers’ houses.
The average delivery time under the purchase is 10 minutes, the company says, and the most popular items require custom applications of hot food, cold beverages and over-the-counter medicines.
We extend the average distance of delivery of Flirtey and how it avoids the sight beyond vision (BVLOS). A quick glimpse of the video on this page, however, seems to show that unmanned planes deliver customers’ lives very close to 7-11. There are also people in the off-location, so Flirtey could have more than one person monitoring delivery.
Updated December 21, 7:00 pm EDT: Flirtey tells Robotics Trends that it has obtained all the required authorization operations. UAVs fly within sight of themselves within a mile of the store. There is a loop to take over the Flirtey operator if needed, but not necessary.
The original Amazon Prime air unmanned aircraft delivered to the British inhabitants, they sold only took 13 minutes, from the Amazon unmanned aircraft flight test Cambridge cross field a farmhouse just 765 yards away.
The unmanned aircraft deliver Flirtey show also in perfect weather conditions, of course. But to be fair, so no other unmanned aircraft deliver what we’ve seen.
Flirtey and 7-Eleven hope to expand the UAV in 2017 to deliver the test in Nevada.
“When other companies are working overseas in this field, Flirtey’s immediate delivery goal is to create hard-working Americans and veterans in the country in the process,” said Matthew Sweeny, chief executive of Flirtey. “This is a great leap forward, so that everyone can experience Flirtey’s convenient instant-store-to-door UAV delivery.”

The delivery robot race is heating up. This is why we have delivered robotics focused mainly on the CES Robotics Conference, held January 6, 2017, from 9 am to 12:30 am at CES. The “Delivery Robot Knock” panel will explore how UAVs and autonomous mobile robots can change door-to-door and emergency medical responses. Greenwich Ahti Heinla, Helen CyPhy, and Steve’s cousin, Savioke, will discuss development, the need to continue testing and how to overcome regulatory and technical challenges.
