Retail giant Amazon has released a new video shedding more light on its future drone deliver service – Amazon Prime Air.
With the help of ex-Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson, Amazon’s new video explains how the drone fleet will be able to fly for 15 miles at altitudes of 400 feet.
Clarkson explains how the drones use GPS and ‘sense and avoid’ tech to navigate to the correct delivery point. He also shows how customers will get a notification once the drone is near.
The video shows a small Amazon logo laid out on a lawn, and the drone depositing a package on top of it.
There is also actual aerial footage of an Amazon drone flying in the in new video, but the retailer still hasn’t confirmed when Prime Air will launch.
Check out the full video below:
There’s been a mixed reaction to the new video on Twitter. Here’s a few of them:

If Amazon can pull this off it's crazy. It's also game over for every other retailer. https://t.co/3kIb9NftLD

@zpower if they want people to take it seriously, they need to stop only talking about it on the day before Cyber Monday.
