- The future of drone delivery depends on predicting the weather
By Bloomberg - Thursday Jun 22, 2017
Imagine a weather report so precise it provides wind-gust forecasts for individual city blocks. Such micro-weather data may soon become a reality—and a necessity for future fleets of delivery drones.
As Amazon.com Inc., United Parcel Service Inc., Domino’s Pizza Inc., and others gear up to launch autonomous drone deliveries of books, pills, and pizza, companies are realizing it’s the quality of hyperlocal weather data more than anything else that will steer their packages around storm clouds and through wind-buffeted urban canyons.

The two ride-hailing competitors, long operating in New York City, are now allowed to operate in the entire state. Legislation signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo went into effect June 29, bringing Uber and Lyft to upstate New York, Long Island, Westchester, and pretty much the rest of the state.
Ride-hailing drivers have worked in other parts of the state before, but local legislation banned the services from some areas, including much of Long Island. The new law allows ride-hailing throughout the state—with specific regulations surrounding background checks and other concerns—but permits local governments to opt out if they wish. Westchester came close, but ultimately went ahead with the services. Read more...More about Uber, New York, New York State, Ride Sharing, and Lyft
