Google Is Testing Delivery Drone System - Prof. Ryan Calo quoted

"I don't know that Google is much better positioned than Amazon or anyone else in terms of technology, but the company has a track record of being influential in terms of policy," said Ryan Calo, a law professor at the University of Washington who studies robotics and privacy.
Earlier this year, the FAA said it didn't contemplate autonomous drone delivery, effectively grounding Google's and Amazon's ambitions for now, Mr. Calo noted. However, he said having both Google and Amazon working to change the FAA's view increased their chances of success.
