VoloDrone is an unmanned, fully electric cargo drone capable of carrying an impressive and unprecedented payload. VoloDrone has been designed to carry out complex missions in various industries and is ready to be deployed where classic transport reaches its limits.
The presentation of the Volocopter electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) cargo drone was held on the sidelines of the ITS 2021 World Congress. VoloDrone is capable of transporting cargo pallets of any of six sizes according to ISO standards (up to 200 kg) at a distance of up to 40 kilometers.
The three-minute test flight started in the port of Hamburg. A cargo the size of a EUR Pallet was attached to the cargo compartment between the VoloDrone chassis, after which the device smoothly rose to a height of 22 meters. The cargo drone then delivered the “package” to a special DB Schenker bike, which took it to its final destination.
As a result, at VoloDrone’s first public flight in Hamburg, Volocopter GmbH and DB Schenker demonstrated how drone operations can expand existing logistics infrastructure for land or sea transport, creating completely new supply chains and transport routes. The cargo drone VOLODRONE this is big step of making urban air mobility a reality.
In the very near future available options on your smartphone:
