X Company began using Project Wing drone for medicine and food delivery in Australia

The X Company (formerly known as Google X lab, now an independent company under Alphabet’s leadership) started testing drones for delivering small items to outlying regions of Australia, Engadget reports.

As part of Australian testing, the Project Wing drone (which X's team has been working on since 2014) will deliver medications from local Chemist Warehouse chain and orders from Mexican restaurants Guzman y Gomez to residents of the outlying regions. Previously, drone was already tested in several countries around the world; now it’ll have to cope with deliveries for people who live at a considerable distance from pharmacies and establishments.

Before starting to use Project Wing in work with other companies, developers plan to spend some more time testing to improve logistics.
