Arlington, TX Food Bank Delivery Technologies Pilot
Arlington received a U.S. Department of Energy grant for a two-year pilot of autonomous food deliveries. Extensive outreach efforts and route planning will precede two demonstration periods of up to four weeks each in East Arlington. Three hundred boxes of food from Tarrant Area Food Bank will be delivered using an Aerialoop ALT6-4 VTOL Delivery Drone and a CLEVON 1 delivery robot. Project leaders will use the Airspace Link AirHub Portal for drone management and route analytics.
