Google is negotiating with the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and other stakeholders on establishing air traffic control systems that would use cellular and internet technology to identify drones.
The FAA has not finalised new rules for operating commercial drones in its territory.
Google X, the company’s secretive research and development arm, unveiled details of Project Wing in 2014. Its first test flight took place in Warwick, southern Queensland, Australia.
Apart from Google, e-commerce companies such as Amazon and Alibaba are also testing drone delivery services.
