Is a custom built, high-efficiency delivery UAV that is fully integrated with our line of electric delivery trucks. The Horsefly system is designed to conform to the FAA guidelines for UAV operation in the U.S. Most notably, being fully integrated with delivery trucks, the system is designed such that a driver or driver’s assistant can maintain line-of-sight operation of the UAV delivery process.
AERES is a custom Horsefly user control center. Built by Workhorse this technology allows the user a variety of monitoring options which include location of: package, truck, drone and real time onboard video of Horsefly.
Our autonomous system is intergrated with the C1000 Electric Delivery Vehicles. The truck is the jumping off point for the drone and then the pair will meet after the delivery is complete. The truck features a control center for the driver and auto-landing Horsefly roof with charging capabilities.
The Horsefly is a 4 rotor UAV that can fly fully autonomously. Our custom-built drone is designed for safety, efficiency, and can undergo the rigors of day to day delivery.
The Horsefly is an autonomous package delivery drone. We are constantly adopting new technology to maximize payload and efficiency.

Drone delivery may be closer to reality than you think! And not only in England, where Amazon is testing it. A Loveland, Ohio, company is testing it in its own neighborhood. The idea is that the drone is an assistant to the truck driver. We flew Sky9 along with a test flight Thursday. WorkhorseVideo
