There were times when mail men used to come on bicycle to deliver mails and parcels to homes. Next it evolved into Vans and next to it is using to Drones to deliver parcels. Amazon is currently working on this.  Chief executive of Amazon Jeff Bezos said in a TV interview, ‘‘I know this looks like science fiction, but it’s not. We can do half-hour delivery… and we can carry objects, we think, up to five pounds (2.3kg), which covers 86% of the items that we deliver.” The service is expected to take 5 years to launch prior to the permission from US Regulatory. Air space for drones by police and Govt. agencies are already opened in USA and civilian air space for drones is expected to open by the end of 2015 in USA and by 2016 in Europe. Amazon mentioned that, “from a technology point of view, we’ll be ready to enter commercial operations as soon as the necessary regulations are in place. The FAA was “actively working on rules for unmanned aerial vehicles”, One day, Prime Air vehicles will be as normal as seeing mail trucks on the road today.” Dr Darren Ansell of the University of Central Lancashire. Said, “The Unmanned Aerial Vehicles do not currently have the awareness of their environment to be able to avoid flying into people. To deliver goods to people’s homes for example in residential areas, the UAVs must overfly densely populated towns and cities, something that today’s regulations prevent. Other things to consider are security of the goods during the transit. With no one to guard them the aircraft and package could be captured and stolen.”
