The delivery drones of Amazon will be “more like horses than cars” said Paul Misener in an interview with Yahoo. “If you have a small tree in your front yard,” Misener explains, “and you want to bang your car into it for some reason, you can do that. Your spouse might not be happy with you, but you can do it. But try riding a horse into the tree. It won’t do it. The horse will see the tree and go around it. Same way our drones will not run into trees, because they will know not to run into it.”

Misener says Amazon’s prototype drones have “sense-and-avoid” technology that aims to keep them out of power lines, trees, and other obstacles that could come between them and your ordered items.

Like the horse in the above example, the drones of Amazon will recognize and avoid trees, buildings and other natural or man-made objects. The company is currently testing several prototypes, having technologies comply to different variables. Amazon takes into account the different climatic conditions, types of city areas and housing to create an aircraft that will handle optimally with all supplies.
