Abstract

Considering the weight of the traffic in the Philippines, the delivery of products via land vehicles has long since been an inconvenience to consumers due to extensive delivery times. Due to the increasing number of people using automobiles on the road every year, traffic congestion becomes more prevalent in both rural and urban areas, especially during rush hours. To compensate for this, an alternative form of courier service via unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or specific drones is proposed. Drone delivery is performed such that drones would transfer parcels from headquarters to the assigned delivery location within a maximum distance of 12 kilometers. The approximated travel time of the drones is calculated assuming perfect weather conditions, no wind turbulence, and no object collision. The estimation is made considering the average speed of the drone and the input distance from headquarters to the delivery location. A Matlab program is made that computes for the delivery time of the drone given an input between 0 to 12 kilometers. Relatively, tests show that input distances lower than 0 or greater than 12 kilometers results in an error message. © 2020, World Academy of Research in Science and Engineering. All rights reserved.
