City of Ontario, California, starts testing drone deliveries in dedicated neighbourhood

Drone service provider Airspace Link has started testing the safe integration of drones into the City of Ontario, California. An event entitled “Tech on Tap” commenced on 9 July to celebrate the grand opening of a new “Connected and Convenient Community,” named New Haven; a new-construction, and resort-style, residential development from Brookfield Residential. This Ontario-based development is designed to be a connected community that will benefit from smart innovations, including drone delivery of food and beverages, packaged goods and other commercial services focused on forward-looking technology.

Airspace Link is teamed with drone delivery services provider DroneUp and the City of Ontario to showcase the digital infrastructure between the New Haven neighbourhood, located within the Ontario Ranch development, and its nearby New Haven Marketplace. The digital infrastructure is designed to enable safe, advanced and scalable drone delivery options for a variety of products.

Airspace Link CEO Michael Healander said Ontario will serve as a test bed for future connected communities — those which will one day receive other drone delivery services such as water meter readings, safety reports and on-demand pharmaceutical delivery.

Following the City of Ontario and Brookfield’s grand opening event, Airspace Link plans to implement a full operational strategy for routine deliveries with various drone companies; providing an alternative option to traditional ground transportation that is faster, more economical, and more sustainable (also better for the environment with less CO2 emissions).
