Introducing the Transwheel, which is a concept that tries to figure out a different method for package distribution, attempting to make it a 24/7 autonomous service that would be performed by robotic single-wheeled drones that can work both together and individually to make sure packages are delivered on time and in an efficient manner. Each wheel is equipped with a self-balancing gyroscopic system, GPS communication, and electric arms. The smaller parcels are able to be delivered by a single robot, where as the larger packages would require a team of robots that will self-configure the packages dimensions and size. I can imagine if these were for sale that many companies, regardless of cost, would want this technology to make sure their packages are delivered to the correct place in correct city and on time at that. Amazon would be one of those that I think could really benefit from this system. Of course, I’m sure there would be some pros and cons to using drones for delivery, but I am sure with time we will perfect this and it will become an every day occurrence!
