The Cento drone is monitored by air traffic controllers and solves the problem of long-distance drone transportation in autonomous mode.
The Mighty Fly foot It is the Cento drone, which can open a new way in transportation thanks to its higher loading capacity and greater range. With drones, they promise, goods reach their destination much faster than on public roads, and because of their hybrid electric propulsion, they are a more environmentally friendly option compared to most modes of transportation. The third-generation version of the drone can currently carry only 45 kilograms of cargo, but a version with a payload capacity of more than 200 kilograms will be manufactured later. The machine delivers the load to a distance of up to 1,000 kilometers, then unloads its load independently at the arrival point and continues to the next destination with the rest of the goods.
The vehicle is monitored and controlled by air traffic controllers from MightyFly headquarters, and cargo loading is managed by the ALMS (Autonomous Loading Control System), which allows the doors to open and close independently, with products optimally arranged and secured inside the vehicle (and naturally However, human labor is needed to load the goods). The ALMS could already be used by the US Air Force after 2025, and Cento will begin deliveries in the Michigan area this year for demonstration purposes.
Drone delivery is being used or at least tested by many companies around the world, for example, Amazon is leading the way in the use of technology: it has enabled this type of home delivery in several American cities and in 2024 in Italy and the United States. United kingdom It was submitted the system. In Hungary, Rossmann announced last year that they had begun testing the possibility of drone delivery, but the project was still in the pilot phase at the time, so the service will have to wait for the time being.
