Volocopter expands into utility drone business with heavy-lift VoloDrone
So volocopter remembered that they were effectively building a large cargo drone, and built that variant for sale. Being able to handle podded payloads is interesting, somewhat in teh vein of the DARPA transformer/TX program.

Hyundai Motor Company Reveals Commercial Truck Mobility Vision at NACV Show - Hyundai Newsroom
This is kinda stylish, though the euro boxcab lineage advantage gets lost due to fuel cell hydrogen tankage. Daimler recently said their going all EV and hydrogen on their trucks, no LNG, so maybe everyone is following the footsteps of the Nikola One?

Not a classic BWB nor a flying wing, this thing just sits on the containers and swallows them up. Looking kinda Bartini there...

A drone program taking flight
Interesting they went with a tailsitter VTOL with wing shroud, rather than google's quadplane style octocopter format. Shroud should keep idiots away from propellers somewhat better, but isn't foolproof. Google decided tethered package drops were safer though.

US10216188B2 - Autonomous ground vehicles based at delivery locations - Google Patents
Amazon patent for a UGV that stays at your home/apartment complex and goes out to cargo truck retrieve packages when it rolls by. As opposed to FedEx, where their UGV rolls from the truck to your door.

Delivering the Future: FedEx Unveils Autonomous Delivery Robot
DEKA designed ibot chassis derivative parcel delivery bot, which suggests it's got some Segway self-balancing tech in there for obstacle clearance, and perhaps stair climbing? As opposed to the recent Amazon patent, where they have a UGV based in your home, that goes out to meet the large cargo truck to retrieve packages.

Looks like the low slung Steinwinter tractor-trailer, featured in the Highwayman TV series in the 80's...

It's an interesting retrofit solution for the existing 5-th wheel trailer fleet, though I would have expected a better windbreak in front of the trailer front end.

Interesting, but it doesn't look like the VTOL props feather, and I would have put the downward facing props aft and the normal props in front plus tilt the engine mounts. But from a device risk standpoint, eliminating a tilt failure mode does make sense, and if no tilt, then having the props reverse mounted may improve airflow over the wing.

Practical Application Limits of Fuel Cells and Batteries for Zero Emission Vessels
Uh, they only cover batteries or liquid/gaseous hydrogen PEM fuel cells in the comparison, so kinda incomplete. So no LNG fuel cells, no fuel cell/microturbine hybrids using the microturbine combustor as a topping cycle. Also, the basic conclusion is huge vessels could run a full trip, but on liquid hydrogen only, and short trip ferries should look at batteries instead.

Okay, this seems like an actual improvement over Amazon's Kiva whole shelf moving UGV's. Using the drones as both UGV's carrying single trays as well as elevator pickers to pull from dense/high tray stacks means you can multiplex tray picking from the stacks, rather than the typical separate elevator picker bot permanently mounted on the shelves.
