The use of drones and unmanned aerial vehicles has branched enough to be considered as an integral and indispensable part of all fields of business. As far as business software goes, drones have realized a significant, rapidly growing, number of important roles.
The design and implementation of drone software became a branch of business in itself. Companies like DroneDeploy are benefiting largely from the popularity drones are gaining all over the world. DroneDeploy managed to develop what can be described as the world’s fastest solution and easiest solution to build aerial models and maps. They simply offer you, using a simple application that you can install on your smartphone, the chance to control a drone on the other side of the planet to capture data. They also allow you to deploy your own drone to carry out sophisticated tasks using their already charted routes and scripted flights uploaded on the cloud. DroneDeploy currently covers 200 million acres across 100 countries.
The use of programmed unmanned vehicles is not restricted to flying robots only, but programmed software can be labeled as a drone. Programming languages nowadays are developed enough for anybody with a simple programming background to build drone software that can run just about any project like a human can. In this day and age, the software is programmed to host and maintain websites, actual real-life projects, and entire factories without the involvement of a man. Sooner or later it will be an all machine world and humans will become obsolete. Luckily, machines are yet to become self-aware enough to inflict any harm on humans. Yet there’s no doubt that this point in the future is going to come, sooner or later.
Drones have recently played roles in advertising for different business lines. Companies like Hoovy and DroneCast deploy drones carrying billboards in specific areas to raise awareness of a large number of brands. The flying billboards have attracted the attention of a large number of mega-corporations and are only expected to increase in number as the two companies plan to expand their services to cover a larger demographic. Drones have also been used to raise awareness of humanitarian issues like poverty, drought and AIDS disease.
Their infamous involvement in a military operation and unlawful trespassing incidents often overshadows their potential for user involvement in other projects. Drones are surely effective in the time of war but they can be far more effective and efficient in the time of peace. They have proved, since their introduction that they can save money, lives, properties and more. The introduction of drones has already changed the nature of life as we know it. Cheap ones are now being manufactured and once they spread among hobbyists and technology fanatics they’ll be an indispensable part of our daily routine. Soon not only business will be using drones, but also you are going to use one to do your own shopping.
