Singapore, 8 October, 2015: Singapore Post (Singpost) today announced a joint development with the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) for a Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV, also known as drone). A last mile mail and packet drone delivery trial was successfully completed between Lorong Halus and Pulau Ubin. The drone which was built upon the Pixhawk Steadidrone platform was by IDA Labs to meet the new conceptual delivery platform from SingPost, and tailored for use in a challenging environment like Singapore. This is the first time in the world a postal service has successfully used an UAV for point-to-point recipient-authenticated mail delivery.
