Amazon to call on US Congress for fewer drone restrictions

Martyn Williams | June 17, 2015
Amazon on Wednesday will call on the U.S. Congress to embrace automated drone flights and come up with a set of simple, nationwide regulations that will allow its proposed Prime Air service to get off the ground.

"If a consumer wants a small item quickly, instead of driving to go shopping or causing delivery automobiles to come to her home or office, a small, electrically powered SUAS will make the trip faster and more efficiently and cleanly," the testimony says.

In fact, Misener will say, far from drones making the world less safe, their introduction will mean a reduction in cars and delivery vans that will make ground transportation a safer experience.

The hearing is scheduled to begin at 9am Eastern U.S. Time.
