UPS tests drone deliveries via high-tech truck

UPS tested out home delivery via drone this week in Florida, moving closer toward a more automated delivery process.

The drone took off from the roof of a modified delivery truck, equipped with a high-tech docking bay, then dropped off package before returning.

The company does not have a timeline for when drones would be put into wider use, according to Reuters. UPS said the drone deliveries could help drivers in more rural, spread-out areas.
