Re: Exotic WLAN attack and fit for signature based approach
Drone delivery technology is in its infancy at the moment, the Parrot AR.Drone costs $300 and with the standard battery pack it can remain airborne for around 12-minutes. Extended batteries are available that can take flight time to around 20-minutes at a time. Overall, it gives it a range of around 1 km, having a payload in the form of pizza delivery will shorten its range.
Algorithms would need to be developed for deliver drones to automatically fly at least part of the distance, when nearing the end destination for pizza delivery, a sales representative will need to take over to guide the drone and maybe, call the customer to receive their pizza.
I guess, the cost of a dedicated delivery van would range in the $25,000+ range, fuel expenses and a dedicated employee would add to the final cost, drones on the other hand are cheaper, and shorter employee intervention would save costs.
