Drone Delivery in India
A new collaboration between Garuda Aerospace, KL Tech City, and Jedsy
A Memorandum of Understanding was signed by Garuda Aerospace, KL Tech City, and Jedsy to advance their collaboration on Jedsy delivery drones. The MoU calls for cooperation in knowledge and technology as well as market expansion and joint ventures.
Mr. Agnishwar Jayaprakash, CEO of Garuda Aerospace, stated that the industry is now prepared to accept drones for a variety of purposes, including Delivery. He stated that our team was given the chance to showcase drone-based delivery, and we successfully completed the tests to deliver packages and couriers for the Indian government and military. The prime minister then requested that we deliver mail, primarily to isolated, difficult-to-reach locations. After receiving a well-informed proposal on drone utilization, the prime minister requested that our drones reach rural areas of the country. In addition to transporting medicines and other supplies to those living in remote places, he stated that drones could also deliver mail packages to them. We anticipate approximately one hundred long-range Jedsy drones to be in service by the end of the following year, as the demand is enormous.
Mr. Herbert Weirather, CEO of Jedsy, states: "Logistics is the backbone of every economy, and we can make a significant impact in India, which has one of the slowest roads in the world, according to the IMF. With our technology utilizing very easy and convenient Mailbox docking station to automatically charge our drones, we have the most efficient system for expanding drone deliveries alongside Garuda and KL Tech City. There are growing traffic and environmental problems, and we must adopt more sustainable solutions. As Jedsy utilizes a fixed-wing aircraft design, it can travel fifty times more efficiently than any automobile, in a straight line, without traffic, and at a cruising speed of 100 km/h, while remaining silent. It is only a matter of time before lightweight deliveries are made on a large scale, as this is the logical progression of rapid logistics."
Mr. Suraj Arora, Co-Founder and Managing Director of KL Tech City said “At KL Tech City Our focus is on 4IR (fourth industrial revolution) Ventures with transformative technologies which contribute towards global digitization. We specialize in IP technology transfer and are very excited about this collaboration of expanding the product portfolio for Garuda Aerospace with Jedsy Delivery Drones . Also it helps create new geographies for Jedsy”.
