Zipline technology: A look inside
When GPS location isn’t enough
To fly autonomously, Zips need to know their position and orientation at all times to a high degree of accuracy. Standard GPS is only accurate to 5 meters, which isn’t enough for safe flight operations or accurate deliveries.
Zipline embedded a custom-built navigation system that uses onboard flight components and relative positioning. Every Zip can autonomously determine where it is in 3-dimensional space down to a single centimeter, which means safer, more controlled flight at every turn.
“It has changed the system for us for the better. We are 100% sure of product availability even when there is a shortage. Plans are in place to cover the whole country so that every single facility has access to the right commodity at the right time.”
