Regulators can't deter Tech Giant from its future plans
Amazon has received a patent for "docking stations" for its delivery drones that will be built on e.g. lampposts or churches and allow the drones to recharge and pick up packages. Amazon is trying to convince regulators on allowing it to deliver parcels by drones. Not very successfully so far but that hasn't stopped Amazon from applying for patents and testing its drones.
The latest patent describes docking stations which could be installed on any tall structure. It would allow a drone to land, recharge and drop off and pick up goods. Amazon has the idea of a "central control system" which communicates with the docking stations.
