Flipkart Health will be running another pilot with drone startup Skye Air to test the suitability of robot based clinical conveyances in Kolkata. The pilot will run until September 8, with 20 flights a day conveying a payload of around 5 kilograms and covering a complete elevated distance of 16 kilometers.

Revealed by TechCircle, the pilot will work inside a center and-talked model, and convey clinical supplies from Flipkart’s stockrooms to its over-the-counter outlets across the city. The robot to be utilized will be the Skye One that can travel 20 kilometers in 30 minutes or less. Skye Air professes to have led more than 1,200 trips with it.

Skye Air will likewise be trying its new past visual-view (BVLOS) drone, Artemis, for drone conveyances too. It was divulged in May, and can hypothetically fly at 100 kilometers each hour for an hour and a half, while conveying a 6 kilogram payload.

While drone conveyance pilots and organizations have become normal during Covid, the public authority recognized this new reality before this month when it reported that it won’t disrupt such tests.

Skye Air has proactively declared comparative pilots with Swiggy and Curefoods somewhat recently, while another organization, Redwing Aerospace, reported a clinical conveyance pilot in Arunachal Pradesh on August 15. Redwing will convey meds and indicative examples to and from the distant town of Seppa, which is regularly very challenging to reach.
