@pocharle, Do you mean " hacking" to redirect deliveries from their original destination?

@ Hailey, you are right. Quick deliveries may also help to save more lives.

@ tirlapur, You made good point there. Don,t you also think that the use of drons would reveal "who" orders "what".

A single service simplifies things. Maybe USPS gets a drone monopoly.

@ Hailey, I agree with you on that. I think sorting is still within the jurisdiction of what robots c a n do but driving and delivering orders may still have to wait for their turns.

@ prabhakar, That is a wonderful way we can get the best out of these delivery drones but if we count the cost, will this still be at the same price with the formal destination. if these drones are running on fuel, will it be able to make it back to base or this would hzve been checked before leaving?

@Nimantha, robots are  a reality in manufacturing. I imagine they could be very useful in package delviery too. Maybe not DRIVING the trucks..but sorting? Who knows.

@Jim: Just one piece of advice. IMO technology should be re-used as much as possible due to the cost factor.

@jim: Yes a good one. I think centralizing all the courier services would be something which should be given some sort of a thought of. Any ideas on that ?
