Matternet, Mercedes-Benz, and Swiss online-shop, siroop, have teamed up to deliver coffee and other products to your front door.

Earlier this week the city of Zurich hosted a test. For this demonstration, the drone successfully flew and landed on it destination, the roof of a Mercedes-Benz van.

How will it work in practice?

The drone reads the destination information using a QR code on the package, then flies the goods to the receiver directly using onboard GPS. Moving at speeds of 43 mph(70 km) and with a range of 12 miles (20 km) it will delivery it’s goods (up to 4.5 lbs) directly to the consumer.

Cheers!
