Every landing site and waypoint has a 3 word address
Location input is easier, safer and faster when you can enter precise landing sites, waypoints and delivery drop-offs with just 3 words.
The best experience for voice input
GPS coordinates are not human friendly and prone to error when entered by voice.
Operators can rely on 99% speech recognition accuracy when entering a 3 word address by voice.
Street address searches drop pins in the centre of buildings, which is not precise enough for UAV routing. Location sharing accurate to 3m x 3m has a crucial role in on-demand drone deliveries.
Always accurate routing
3 word addresses can easily be shared via text or voice to an operator, with complete confidence in accuracy. We provide instant error detection with our AutoSuggest technology. Each 3 word address is unique and similar ones have been placed as far apart as possible to prevent mistakes.
With what3words offline functionality, UAVS and drones can route accurately in locations with limited connectivity – ideal for field workers and first responders.
Operators simply input a precise landing site or waypoint by entering a 3 word address into UAV operating system.
The what3words API converts 3 words to GPS coordinates to route UAV to any 3m x 3m destination.
With 3 word addresses, UAVs can route efficiently to precise landing sites.

“what3words has solved the considerable problem of entering a precise location into a machine by voice. The dramatic rise in voice-activated systems calls for a simple voice geocoder that works across all digital platforms and channels, and can be written down and spoken easily.”
