Drone project: Google and Amazon’s rivalry


Yes, we have seen a lot of rivalry which have led to invention and discovery of many useful things. Interestingly, when it comes to a competition between two technical individuals or companies, the outcome just adds to the pleasure of the customers. The rivalry between Apple’s Steve Jobs and Microsoft’s Bill Gates is a prime example of individual rivalry that has led to the creation of Computer masterpieces. Presently, Amazon and Google are in quite a similar position. The competition between the two is also running on similar grounds with the drone projects.project-wing-google

As stated earlier by us, Google has already completed its initial testing for the drone project named as Project Wing. Amazon had announced the about a similar kind of technology which might just be seen in a few years time. Amazon plans to deliver orders to various locations with the help of drones which will not only save time but also reduce the transportation cost to a certain extent. Although the initial build up cost is huge, drones will prove efficient in the long run according to he experts.

Now when Amazon has already progressed so much, how can Google stay behind! The reports are that Google X labs are the ones working behind Google’s Project Wing. Google X labs are also working on Google Glass and Smart lens for the tech giant. As a part of the test, Google used the drones to deliver dog food to the farmers of Warwick in Australia.

It will be extremely interesting to follow-up the development of the drone projects from both Amazon and Google. Google’s initial plan was to use the drones in the field of medicine and treatment. On the other hand, Amazon plans to use the drones for order delivery. Although Google has kept a veil around the actual intentions with the drone project, one must expect something out of the box which will in turn help Google gain more credits.

Last year, Amazon has unveiled its intentions on same-day delivery of the Amazon packages within 30 minutes to its customers via Prime Air drones. And we reported that “Google will announce their similar or more advanced drones as well as driverless cars made out of Google X Lab soon.”

Seth Weintraub of 9to5Google blog has already reported about this in Feb 2013, where he said,

Along with Glass, Google will have an opportunity to demonstrate other upcoming and Google X projects like driverless cars and mini-drone delivery systems at its stores.
