With the exploding popularity of drones or unmanned aerial vehicle(UAV) in the past few years, it’s not a surprise that business minded people are using this for business applications.
What is a Drone?
Drones are the popular term for UAV or unmanned aerial vehicle(UAV). Drones are controlled on the ground with a ground remote controller. The controller can vary in different forms. Some controller is the traditional radio controller that you used in your remote controller helicopter, while some uses high-end controllers with the screen. Sometimes, your smartphone or tablet is enough to do the trick.
Controllers communicate to a drone via the radio signal or a wi-fi signal. It usually depends on your controller or with your drone manufacturer.
How are businesses using drones?
The most obvious application of drone commercially is using it for photo services. Photo businesses use drones to take an awesome aerial shot that would not be possible without a flying camera.
With the continuous improvement of drones, it’s not a surprise that they can be used to record a stable aerial video. Businesses use this to capture high-resolution aerial videos that can be used commercially.
Manual building surveying can take a lot of time and resources. But because of drones, builders can now easily inspect and survey their construction projects. Drone produce high-quality images and videos, and offer decent flight time. Because of these things, contractors can easily check for damage section, measure, and check for improvements. All these with just the use of a drone.
There has been the futuristic development of drones, such as a delivery system, and the use of drones as a means of transportation.
Drone technology will continue to evolve, and newer application of drones will be developed over time.
