Wal-Mart looks to use its own drones

Posted: Updated:

Wal-Mart says it wants to be the next company to use its drones in the sky.

This week, the company filed for permission with federal regulators. A Wal-Mart spokesperson says it's been testing drones inside for months; now, the retailer wants to use them outside in specific testing sites.

Wal-Mart says it would eventually use drones for home deliveries. However, the company's initial focus would be to move product between distribution centers.
