Google is a public and profitable company focused on search services. Named for the mathematical term “googol,” Google operates web sites at many international domains, with the most trafficked being www.google.com. Google is widely recognized as the “world’s best search engine” because it is fast, accurate and easy to use. The company also serves corporate clients, including advertisers, content publishers and site managers with cost-effective advertising and a wide range of revenue generating search services. Google’s breakthrough technology and continued innovation serve the company’s mission of “organizing the world’s information and making it universally accessible and useful.”
Project Wing, a unit of Google’s parent company Alphabet Inc., will be using its delivery drones to fly burritos from Chipotle to students at Virginia Tech. The tests will begin this month and last a few weeks.
Due to the semi-autonomous nature of Tesla Autopilot, a Google self-driving car executive says it was the responsibility of Joshua Brown, who was killed in an accident while his Model S was on Autopilot, to be cautious.
Project Wing will be allowed to test beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) capabilities, one of the major roadblocks for drone delivery services, and develop an airspace management system to ensure safe integration of drones in airspace under 400 feet.
