What To Expect From Drones

Demands for safe and versatile operations will move drone technology toward collaborative missions between drones or with human operators. Such teamwork can exponentially expand drone capabilities and applications otherwise unattainable.

Development of Drone Industry will take a very similar route to that seen in all tiers of the manned aviation industry in respect to regulation, commercialisation, technology providers and trusted commercial operators.

Automated police monitoring.

Drones, unmanned aircraft or ground vehicles, will have a huge impact on security – enhancing current capabilities while providing safer alternatives for the more dangerous missions currently being performed by humans.

The primary change in upcoming quarters will be commercial regulations. If these are hospitable, it will be a starting gun for innovation in the business sector, the future for drone growth.

Drone adoption will double this growing season in agriculture and be embraced by Disaster Response organizations following their utility in the recent Ecuadorian earthquake.

The primary change in drones is going to be speed. With drone racing growing at an exponential rate, drone makers are going to look to create RTF solutions for hobbyists.

Indoor drones will be used for building security, maintenance and document delivery and can be paired with Ultra-Wideband (UWB) micro-location technology for centimeter navigation accuracy with greater than 99% reliability.

Expect wider use of drone tech in roofing, landscaping and other segments during the bidding/estimating phase. Bird’s eye before/ after photos and renderings give contractors an edge over competitors.

Onboard vision and AI will continue to improve autonomy, and software advances will make sensing, data gathering, and analytics more robust, expanding commercial capabilities.

The biggest change that we have seen is an increase in interest from police and fire departments. These departments are now realizing how drones will be helpful in life saving operations.

Drones will continue their advancement towards full autonomy through the implementation of object avoidance sensors as well as autonomous flight modes that will help drones become a staple in everyday life from the delivery of pizza to packages.

2 Things – Technology & Policy. Fixed wing drones are more efficient, and have difficult control dynamics. But AI with control engineering will tackle it. FAA and cronies will be widely unmasked about their wild imaginations.

Software (DO-178C) and aircraft certification being required for Beyond Visual Line Of Sight (BVLOS) operations. I also see a rush to develop small drones under 250 grams to circumvent the new registration requirements.

I believe that the future of drones is to be able to drop packages at your front door in only just a few hours since you placed an order online.

I think drones will become the primary means to cut costs for security, police and military.
