Who in Silicon Valley does not have their own fleet of drones?
Google got Titan Aerospace, a drone firm, now, only one month after Facebook was allegedly eyeing it.
“It is still early days, but atmospheric satellites may help bring internet access to huge numbers of individuals, and help solve other issues, including disaster aid and environmental damage like deforestation,” a Google representative told ABCNews.com in a statement supporting the deal.
“When made, it’d have 3,000 solar panels generating about 7 kW of electricity and would be above the clouds, so it’d be exposed to sun always during daytime hours,” the firm said in a news release. “One is scheduled for completion next year.”
The technology world has been buzzing about drones as well as the way they are able to set them to use.
Mark Zuckerberg declared that the team at Facebook was working with a group from UK-based drone business Ascenta to work on developing drones that might help enlarge and enhance internet access all over the world.
For a drone delivery service, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos additionally declared his vision in 2013.
