Amazon finally gets to test key drone-delivery technology. It just has to go outside the U.S. to do it.
The online retailer has announced it’s partnering with the U.K. Civil Aviation Authority to test technology that helps drones avoid obstacles, allows a handler to fly multiple drones at once and enables drones to fly beyond the handler’s line of sight in suburban and rural areas.
Regulations in the U.S. don’t allow those trials beyond the handler’s line of sight.
