Safety is our highest priority. We’ve flown tens of thousands of test flights at our private test facilities in the US, and we recently completed hundreds of yard deliveries to residents living on the border of NSW and the ACT. All of our tests are conducted in accordance with all applicable Australian aviation laws and regulations and Wing safety policies.
In addition to this, we have multiple levels of redundancy built into our operations, including real-time systems that conduct health and safety checks on our drones, and qualified pilots who oversee the operations.
Wing takes privacy extremely seriously. Camera data is used by our drone to help it navigate safely. The cameras on our delivery drones are not video cameras, rather they take intermittent low-resolution grayscale photographs. We actively avoid capturing any more data than is necessary for the safe operation of our drones, and access to this footage is strictly limited to a very small group of safety engineers at our headquarters who use it to improve the drone’s navigation.
We actively avoid capturing any more data than is necessary for the safe operation of our drones, and access to this data is strictly limited to a small group of safety engineers on our team and is used for technical debugging purposes and to improve our service. It is not available in real-time and can not be viewed by the pilots who oversee our operations. Wing does not publish or share this data with anyone outside our team.
