Can Drone Delivery Get off the Ground without Edge Computing?

Ryan Walsh, CEO and Co-founder of Valqari, shares why his team is excited about the announcement yesterday from AWS and Verizon regarding 5G computing.

“We believe 5G is going to be critical for low-latency solutions,” Walsh said. “Edge computing is going to create a much easier process via decentralization when it comes to the communication that’s required for drone delivery.

As you start having dozens and then 100,000 and even more drones in the sky operating on different networks, it’s important that they can use low latency and edge computing to prevent collisions, as well as communicate with the FAA and our landing stations.

So, for us, this is a big sign of what’s to come. And, as a user of AWS, as well as a partner of Verizon, we couldn’t be happier to see this happen. We’re really excited about what this holds for the future of drone delivery, and we can’t wait to see what they have in store.”
