About Commercial-purpose Drones
Drones are UAVs. Their flight is controlled with a handheld remote or GPS remote. GPS is used to track the drones. The gyrometer and accelerometer, which are attached to the drones, are used to control the drones during flight. Drones are primarily used for tasks that are of high risk to human life. They are extensively used for surveillance and rescue, emergency response, high-altitude imaging, forest-fire monitoring, flood mapping, humanitarian aid, product delivery, petroleum-spill monitoring, and Internet connectivity, as well as in the photography and film industry.
Along with the evolution of technology, drones have improved in terms of design, operating range and tenure, and data processing. Modern-day drones can process high-resolution videos and images and other surveillance data in real time. Drones help cut costs and save time while mitigating risks to human life.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global commercial-purpose drones market to grow at a CAGR of 57% during the period 2016-2020.
