Valqari To Launch First 5G Connected Drone Delivery To Smart Mailbox

Drone Delivery Demo Conducted September 11th at Curiosity Lab Event

Valqari, creator of the patented Smart Drone Delivery Mailbox and provider of last inch solutions for drone deliveries, has teamed up with Sprint to become the first smart mailbox to connect to their HTC 5G Hub. To showcase this cutting-edge advancement, Valqari’s technology was demonstrated at the grand opening of Curiosity Lab at Peachtree Corners on September 11th. Located in Peachtree Corners, GA, this new, real-world testbed offers 5G connectivity powered by Sprint and a 1.5-mile autonomous vehicle test track which will be used for the Valqari test delivery.

5G will be essential for making autonomous drone deliveries to smart mailboxes successful, according to Valqari. The company’s Smart Drone Delivery Mailbox will use 5G LTE connectivity to ensure seamless communication with drones for a fully-automated delivery process while also providing a reliable, universal drone receptacle for package delivery and pick-up.

"The advanced technology in our universal Smart Drone Delivery Mailbox provides everything from a full chain of custody and unmatched security to authentication and protection from outside elements," said Ryan Walsh, CEO and co-founder of Valqari. "Being connected to HTC 5G Hub will allow real-time communication with any drone so delivery locations can easily and successfully be identified. We are excited about the opportunity to showcase our capabilities at the grand opening of Curiosity Lab and to be the first smart mailbox to receive a drone delivery on its autonomous vehicle test track.”

Also supporting Valqari with this demo is its recent partner Autonodyne, an unmanned aerial flight software developer. Autonodyne showcased its RCU-1000 software and hardware integration for the drone’s autonomous launch and recovery. Drones will use this software by programing the movement of payloads automatically.
