Google’s new parent company Alphabet plans to start using drones to deliver packages to customers by 2017, the drone initiative’s top executive said on Monday.
The tech giant is engaged in a dialogue with the Federal Aviation Administration to set up a system that would enable air traffic control of drones flying below 500 feet, David Vos, head of Google’s drone program Project Wing, said at a conference, according to Reuters.
Companies like Amazon and Walmart have also announced drone-delivery initiatives, but federal approval of the initiatives remains uncertain.
