Google Files Patent For Drone 'Delivery Receptacle'

According to a recent patent filing, Google is working on a "delivery receptacle" for its drone delivery system. No specific details were given on how the device operates.

A patent filed Tuesday in the United States by the company, a unit of Alphabet Inc, describes a "delivery receptacle" designed to take packages from an "aerial delivery device" for deposit to a secure location. The receptacle would use infrared beacons to connect with drones in the air and then guide them for delivery.
