A Chicago startup that’s building a landing spot for at-home drone deliveries held its first public demo Wednesday at a smart city event in an Atlanta suburb.
Valqari, a smart drone delivery mailbox that aims to securely receive packages, groceries and other items, was on display today at a tech event at Peachtree Corners, a city north of Atlanta. On Wednesday, the city held the grand opening of Curiosity Lab at Peachtree Corners, what it calls the nation’s “first intelligent mobility and smart city living laboratory.”
The facility includes a 1.5-mile testing track for autonomous vehicles and other machines, and technology on-hand Wednesday included autonomous cars from Kia, autonomous lawnmowers from Greenzie, and self-driving shuttles from Olli. The smart city testbed includes 5G connectivity via Sprint.
