Drone Delivery Canada plans to integrate AI into its drone delivery solution
Drone Delivery Canada (DDC) plans to integrate Artificial Intelligence (AI) into its disruptive drone delivery solution. As part of the company’s technology roadmap, it plans to integrate various aspects of AI, including its use in leveraging operational data collected by the company’s FLYTE software as related to weather, air traffic patterns, and package delivery patterns; radar data; vehicular & marine traffic data; and battery/fuel consumption data.
AI can be applied to the broad range of data collected by the company in order to optimise predictive real-time route planning, especially in emergency medical scenarios; for electric and gasoline fuel optimisation; long-range and short-range Detect and Avoid (DAA) systems for commercial and residential deliveries; and multi-drone logistics traffic optimisation.
“There are numerous applications for AI within our system to bring even greater benefits to our customers. As one of the global industry leaders, using AI, machine learning and predictive analysis to push performance capabilities to the next level is part of our technology roadmap. Also, considering the volume of data obtained through our operations, this data can be monetised in the future to create new, incremental revenue streams,” said Michael Zahra, president & CEO of DDC.
