FREMONT, CA: Drone technology has a wide range of applications from increasing work efficiency and productivity, decreasing workload and production costs, improving accuracy, refining service and customer relations and resolving security issues on a vast scale.
Drones are known worldwide with different names, like Unmanned Aerial vehicles (UAV), Miniature Pilotless Aircraft, and Flying Mini Robots. Regardless of the name, drones are becoming increasingly popular and have proven to have various applications. Despite being in the infancy stage in terms of mass adoption and usage, drones have managed to break through the rigid traditional barriers which were otherwise impenetrable for similar technological innovations. Over the last few years, drone technology has become vital for various functions for businesses and government organizations. The technology has managed to pierce through various industries where other technologies have been lagging. From quick deliveries at peak hours to scanning an unreachable military base, drones have proven to be extremely beneficial in places where men cannot reach.
Drone technology has a wide range of applications from increasing work efficiency and productivity, decreasing workload and production costs, improving accuracy, refining service and customer relations and resolving security issues on a vast scale. The leap in the adoption of the technology from the fad stage to a mega trend was quick. This rapid growth has led to more and more businesses realizing the potential of the technology. One of the most significant advantages of the technology is its accessibility. Whether controlled by a remote or a smartphone, drones possess the ability to reach the most remote locations with little or no workforce. They require minimum time, effort, and energy. This has sparked a worldwide adoption of the technology, especially in the military, commercial, personal, and future technology sectors.
Drones have been around for the last two decades. However, their roots can be dated back to the first world ware when both the U.S. and the French government worked on the development of unmanned pilots. Drone adoption, global awareness, and usage expansion across industries have increased multifold in recent years. From technically staffing sensitive military areas to luring hobbyists throughout the world, drone technology has developed and prospered in recent years. Individuals, governments, and commercial entities have come to realize that drones have multiple uses like aerial photography for journalism and film, gathering information or supplying essentials for disaster management, express shipping, and delivery, thermal sensors equipped drones for search and rescue operations, and precision crop monitoring.
