On the second day of the Chinese e-commerce giant JD.com's 618-year promotion, a drone took off from a playground in Xi'an and used a football-sized box to send one of its orders to a village in the mountainous south.
The six-rotor drone is one of JD's approximately 40 drones. The purpose of the drone is to more quickly deliver goods such as smartphones and food to remote areas. For this type of distribution, the cost of land transportation is too high and too slow.
One of China's strengths is its market. This country has both advanced drone technology and millions of consumers living in remote areas where trucks are difficult to reach, and sometimes even completely unreachable. According to the National Bureau of Statistics, as of the end of 2017, China's "rural" residents had exceeded 590 million.
"People living in mountainous areas are difficult to reach by ground transportation, but they also have the right to shop!" Said Cui Zheng, the manager of JD's drone project in northwestern China. "We give them the same by using drones. Shopping experience and the same price. "
Competition between JD.com and Alibaba has intensified competition for drone delivery in China. Alibaba's asset-light business model means that it relies on partners to complete the distribution of goods, but Cainiao, its logistics department, has partnered with Beihang UAVs to develop freight drones. The drone company is developing a drone that can carry a ton of cargo and fly over 1,500 kilometers. In May, Alibaba, who was acquired a while ago, was hungry, and was allowed to test drones in a large industrial area.
The drones used by JD and SF still account for only a small part of their daily operations, but for the Chinese government, drone technology provides a way to help rural areas reduce poverty and narrow the gap between the rich and the poor in urban centers. . It could also make China a template for other governments that want to draft regulations for the imminent emergence of civilian drones.
JD.com says parcel delivery costs in remote areas may be five times that of cities. JD.com and SF are reluctant to disclose how much drone can help save costs, but they predict that once drone technology can be applied on a large scale, their costs will be lower than those of courier companies that use manual delivery.
Drone hybrid generator FL6000 is a high efficiency generator designed for multicopters. FL6000 generator is only 7.2kg , which is much lighter than any other generators that produce 600w output power, so FL6000 generator is five times the efficiency of other generators. The continuous power output of generator is 5000w. An internal combustion engine consumes gasoline and spins a generator to ensure a 44.4V output. Besides this, a 12S lipo battery package is also needed to be installed on board to offer emergency back-up power for quick climbing and quick maneuvering. With this generator, the max take-off weight can reach 49kg(according to your power system), and the max flight time is about 2 hours. FL6000 generator is suitable for those multicopters whose power is still lower than 6000w even with 7.2kg generator system(including generator, fuel tank and 3L gasoline). As for the fuel, the auto gasoline is available. When the generator running, its noise level is about 80 dBA. But the noise has no effect if you talk 10 meters away from the drone. We also provide the silencer if you need which could reduce the noise to 60 dBA.
Also maintenance is necessary for FL6000 to keep its high performance. The maintenance cycle is 50 hours. And we will also provide the accessories for generator maintenance.
