Google might have drones deliver packages to robots on wheels

We haven’t heard too much from Google’s Project Wing, the company’s drone delivery project, but a patent filing first reported by Fast Company today suggests the team is hard at work figuring out to get a fleet of robots to work together to automate package drop offs. The patent, filed in October 2014 and granted just yesterday, describes a system by which an aerial drone would communicate with a robotic “mobile delivery receptacle” — a box with wheels — so a package could be delivered in a safe location and then ferried to a secure drop off point.
