Smart devices and drones changing our world
The fast-growing global drone industry has not sat back waiting for government policy to be hammered out before pouring investment and effort into opening up this all-new hardware and computing market.
It’s a future that’s not quite here yet, and that means opportunity.
A growing ecosystem of drone software and hardware vendors is already catering to a long list of clients in agriculture, land management, energy, and construction. Many of the vendors are smallish private companies and startups — although large defense-focused companies and industrial conglomerates are beginning to invest in drone technology, too.
We’re on the precipice of an exciting era. Smart devices are becoming connected in increasingly meaningful ways, providing businesses and people alike with meaningful data and analysis. Businesses are going to enjoy huge increases to productivity as processes become more efficient, while the everyday person will be able to care for their home more easily and effectively — all the more time to play around with the awesome gadgets we’re getting these days.
Domino’s and Chipotle are working on delicious delivery drones that could make pizzas and burritos fly. At the same time, commercial Drones are poised to become involved in everything from agricultural, to security, construction and energy, and even real estate. With a regulatory framework finally in place, the way is clear for all kinds of businesses to take advantage of drone delivery. With increased speed (there’s a little less traffic in the sky!), more deliveries can be made in a single day, creating a potential windfall for virtually any consumer-facing business.
Drones and smart devices have change the way many industries are working. Photography is just one of the uses which have been impacted by the introduction of technology. The constant updates of new phones with cameras and helping everyone to share their experiences. The use of smart phones with drones has allowed more people to experience unique situations which were previously only available with the use of helicopters and other devices costing big dollars and requiring thousands of dollars of professional equipment. Its an exciting time for this type of tech and will be numerous competitors changing the industry over the next few years to follow.
