This is the era of drones, and these unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAVs, increasingly are becoming an integral part of everyday life.
As drones evolve, industries and governments alike are finding new ways to make use of this emerging technology. TechNewsWorld spoke with several experts to find out how drones are being put into service, and what’s on the horizon for their future use.
One theme in all of their perspectives is that ultimately, drones aren’t simply flying machines; they’re also data gatherers and processors.
“At the end of the day, our drone industry’s product is data, not aircraft,” Reese Mozer, co-founder and CEO of American Robotics, explained to TechNewsWorld. “With true automation comes the ability to collect a new category of data not previously possible, and as a result a new category of valuable analytics and insights.”
