The first venture of its kind, UPS will be able to fly an unlimited amount of drones with cargo as part of its delivery service. The guidelines restrict it to delivery only in rural areas or campus settings where population density is lower while the FAA creates guidelines for urban areas. While the drones will just be used for cargo right now, they will soon be a part of healthcare services and much more. Just recently, UPS and Matternet launched a pilot commercial service on a research campus to help carry lab specimens from clinic to clinic. Drones are the postmen of the future.
