In the future, drones could more than just be neat items to see in the air and a way to provide terrific aerial views of an area.

They could also be essential to the delivery of medical supplies, given the result of a recent demonstration conducted by Detroit Region Aerotropolis.

On June 13, a test was conducted at Taylor Beaumont Hospital where a drone carrying box of medical supplies was flown over the area.

The drone started at a hospital helipad, flew over open grounds for a mile and then returned to the medical box to the helipad.

The test showed that drones could be an option going forward for residences and businesses to receive supplies.
