Amazon has recently patented a quite interesting feature, the drone can self-destruct in the air in case of emergency to avoid harming passers.

In a patent describing the design of a new self-destruct system on drone, Amazon wanted the drone to find the right place to "self-destruct" into many aerial pieces before falling to the ground safely. . It could be places like a lake or a tree.

Amazon started using drone to carry cargo since late last year.

The crashed drone can manually activate the flight analysis system, weather conditions, terrain to find the safest place to destroy.

According to Trustedreviews, the process of defragmentation will be gradual and can change the values such as weight, drag coefficient in the air, etc. of the drone. Thus, the ability to do drone damage to the road if unfortunately lost control or malfunction will be reduced significantly.

Amazon started using drone to carry freight since late last year after its first shipment in the UK. Brings the Amazon Fire streaming device and popcorn to a customer named Richard B. The delivery takes 13 minutes and crosses the road for up to 3.2 km.

Although described as a patent quite useful but hard to be sure whether Amazon would like to apply in practice or not. However, if implemented, this will be an expected feature.

Earlier this year, Amazon also filed for another patent on the deployment of parachute-friendly cargo to drop from the air to the ground.
