Walmart, the world’s largest wholesale and retail chain, continues to patent blockchain technology. This time, the retail giant has registered a drone communication system.
An application called “Cloning drones using blockchain” was filed by the company in January of this year. The system allows drones to exchange various information, such as identification numbers, altitude and flight speed, routes, as well as information about battery charge and loading.
“The blockchain can store any information that is stored in any other format or medium, for example, a large list of commands of different types, navigation information, and maps. Thus, one software profile can be distributed on cloned drones,” the application notes.
Coordinating drones is also an important aspect of using the system. At the same time, thanks to the coding of information on a decentralized blockchain, commands can be executed without fear of hacking.
Let us note that in August last year, Walmart announced plans to create an entire automated network for the delivery of goods on the blockchain. The documents describe in detail a system in which several robots handle the delivery of parcels at different ends of the supply chain, using wireless signals for communication.
