Drones have come a long way since Jeff Bezos speculated about their deployment on "60 Minutes" a number of years ago. Just last week, Walmart announced that it has invested in a drone delivery company. And Kroger has announced a pilot that is on the verge of going live.
Kroger is working with a company called Drone Express, a division of a defense contractor called Telegrid. I wanted to know more about the test, the technology and the potential … and so I reached out to Beth Flippo, the company's Chief Technology Officer … and my big question was about the relevance to companies not named Amazon, Walmart and Kroger, and without the deep pockets those companies enjoy.
I hope you enjoy our conversation.
