UAV couriers have become very popular in China

There is no silver lining. The coronavirus epidemic that struck China suddenly and dramatically increased the demand for unmanned vehicles. So, according to Bloomberg, a young Chinese startup Neolix Technologies received an order to produce 200 tiny autonomous electric courier vehicles that have proven themselves in an epidemic.

During quarantine, they delivered medicines and helped doctors spray disinfectants on city streets. Their use turned out to be so in demand that the Celestial government expressed its willingness to reimburse customers up to 60% of the cost of each such vehicle, including those produced by other companies.

The benefits of robotic couriers during the outbreak are obvious, as their owners do not expose themselves to danger of infection. An autonomous drone can deliver the necessary cargo even when its driver is sick or in quarantine.
