The South Korean group is offering the new service in Ireland. Eamonn Grant, Samsung Ireland’s head of internet affairs, and Alan Hicks, technical director of Manna Drone Delivery, have jointly announced that the two sides will work together in the future. The startup specializes specifically in robotic food and luggage transportation. The offer is open to anyone living in Oranmore, Ireland. As promised by Manna Drone Delivery, unmanned aircraft will be able to reach any local household in just 3 minutes from the company’s headquarters.
Samsung highlighted that this was the first such attempt and called robotic parcel delivery a sensible innovation, and even wrote about the trade of the future. The service is available in the city with immediate effect, but is now only available when ordering Galaxy models (S21 Ultra, Galaxy Buds Pro, Galaxy Tab S7, Galaxy Watch 3, Galaxy A), not when purchasing other products such as televisions.
Manna Drone Delivery has so far worked with, among others, Tesco stores and smaller local dealers who have used unmanned aircraft primarily to transport food, food and medicine. The drones used usually travel at an altitude of 50 to 80 meters and have a speed of about 60 kilometers per hour.
