Google to Use Robots for Parcel Delivery

With Amazon announcing the launch of their Prime Air Project, Google too has decided to pitch itself as a worthy competitor in the parcel delivery race with the use of robots - a concept that Parcel2Go thinks will take the retail industry by storm.

Technology's ability to take huge leaps and bounds has allowed it to shape a number of different marketplaces - from personal pleasure to business productivity. And as consumers demand more instant gratification (thanks to on-demand technology enabling short-term solutions such as mobile payments and sharing content), companies are seizing the opportunity to have their goods distributed immediately - with the likes of Amazon and Google only too happy to help.


Les Yates, Marketing Executive, said: "Our broad experience has made us a household name both in the UK and overseas - and it's our reputation that has helped us establish a number of successful partnerships with many a leading courier service.

"What we've come to notice through our international connections is that with ever-changing trends, so the marketplace has had to make the relevant adaptations. We believe it's time that such elite technology is now readily accessible and available for each and every customer, and look forward to such innovations improving the modern landscape."

Parcel2Go already delivers packages to an impressive 240 countries, working with a number of parcel suppliers to process huge volumes of orders quickly and effectively. Sending out over two million parcels each year as well as becoming the first ever online parcel delivery service to reach 100,000 users, Parcel2Go constantly updates its services to ensure its customers receive quality standards at affordable rates.

Bitflow is the leader in CoaXPress

With the introduction of its Cyton and Karbon CXP frame grabbers, BitFlow has established itself as the leader in CoaXPress (CXP), a simple, yet powerful, standard for moving high speed serial data from a camera to a frame grabber. With CXP, video is captured at speeds of up to 6.25 Gigabits/Second (Gb/S). Simultaneously, control commands and triggers can be sent to the camera 20 Mb/S (with a trigger accuracy of +/- 2 nanoseconds). Up to 13 W of power can also supplied to the camera. All this happens over a single piece of industry standard 75 Ohm coaxial cable. Multiple CXP links can be aggregated to support higher data rates (e.g. four links provide 25 Gb/S of data). BitFlow CXP frame grabbers open the door to applications where cable cost, routing requirements and long distances have prevented the move to high resolution, high speed digital cameras. In many cases, existing coaxial infrastructure can be repurposed for CXP with very low installation costs.
