(QuartzMedia) Amazon is reportedly exploring what role autonomous-vehicle technology could have in its business.  This could reflect a plan of Amazon and its CEO Jeff Bezos to own the delivery and logistics chain for its packages, and make it as efficient as possible.
Amazon has been implementing and experimenting with robotic technologies for use in the warehouse to reduce its reliance on human capital and suppliers for years. But Amazon is not stopping at the warehouse. The company has been very vocal about its desire to deliver goods to customers using autonomous drones. First unveiled in 2013, Amazon is getting close to sending small items to customers by drone in under 30 minutes.
