IBM has patented a system using Blockchain technology to prevent package theft using drones.

According to data published by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), IBM will track the height of drones using the Internet of Things (IoT) altimeter, while constantly sending this data to the secure Blockchain platform.

In the future, theft of packages with the help of drones can become something ordinary. The point is that the packages will be equipped with a height sensor that is set to trigger an alarm if a significant change in height is measured outside the set criteria. When the alarm is triggered, the IoT device with GPS support will send accurate location data to the tracking module. It"s like giving Amazon packages a way to call SOS when something goes wrong on the way to the buyer"s home.

IBM patent describes unattended delivery of packages that can expose items to theft and other destructive behavior after package delivery and before it is received:

"The coincidence of the increase in the use of drones and the increase in the number of online purchases provides a situation in which the drone can be used with the wicked intention to anonymously take the package left at hand after delivery," we read.
