Self-driving cars, trucks, and trains will soon begin revolutionizing ground transport systems. However, just as soon as humankind has incorporated robotics into two-dimensional logistics and supply chain systems, the third dimension will begin automating.
Amazon recently patented a skyscraper drone delivery system. This beehive-like building will deploy hundreds of drones to avoid terrestrial traffic and shorten delivery times.
With Amazon paying to patent an airborne drone delivery system for all of our material needs and wants, it becomes easy to imagine robotic air taxis shuttling people around. In fact, a pair of Italian companies have envisioned what this floating taxi could look like.
The three-dimensional revolution in logistics and supply chain management will not only take to the air, but will also be operating below our feet.
Elon Musk’s Boring Company is aiming to create an underground transportation network using Hyperloop technology.
Enormous amounts of money will need to be spent on global infrastructure in the years ahead. From existing roads, rails, and ports, to the three-dimensional technologies of tomorrow, the countries that invest in their infrastructure will be able to deliver products faster and cheaper.
