Drone: The Future of Next Gen Technology in India


Is it true that the drone is the next big thing in India? What is a drone, and why is it referred to as next-generation technology?

Drones, also known as UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles), are flying devices that have a camera attached on their body and can fly up to 15 minute to several hrs depend upon  the battery size and signal range. Typically drone uses 2.4gHz radio frequency. They are used for exploration, delivery, search and rescue, and other purposes. As technology advances, a growing variety of applications emerge.

Global Drone market is currently estimated to cross USD $7.3 billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 19.63%. Global drone industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 19.63% from 2015 to 2021. With the Indian government’s push towards introducing the drone technology in various sectors such as Oil & Gas, Agriculture, Geological Survey, Real Estate, Defence and much more, the demand for drones is highly anticipated to rise in. While consumer interest in drones has grown, the FAA has required that all drone models released before July 2018 have a remote control system that can be activated from a Smartphone. As a result, most consumer drones sold today will not have this capability and therefore will not be able to fly higher or farther than an individual could walk with a hand-held drone or 20-100 feet depending on the model.

Cinema and Photography:

To take Aerial shots ,when drone technology was not available we used to setup the camera on plane and multiple factors were taken care of, for a perfect shot and  it was not an easy task to do. But, thanks to camera drones, we can accomplish it with simplicity. It has altered the likelihood of taking cinematic shots from high altitude.

Stock photography and stock videography are two popular fields that have emerged as a result of advancements in camera quality   and drone technology has been a helping hand. With a talent for photography and a basic understanding of how to operate a drone can pursue a successful career in photography. Previously, aerial photography was quite expensive since you had to go to the top with a stand-alone telescope or a vehicle attached telescope for perfect shot. With affordable drones high altitude beautiful landscape can be captured with ease. Social media platform like Face book , snap chat and Instagram that are photo and video sharing apps that have given boost to photography and video blogging at a new level .

Express shipping and delivery: 

We are witnessing the notion of drone delivery in the sector of freight and shipment delivery in the near future. Companies such as Amazon are highlighting the potential. Amazon Prime Air is a service that will deliver the packages up to 5 pounds in 30 minutes or less using small drones. If the results of the whole screening step are positive, we will witness a revolution in Cargo and freight Industry. It will change the whole system of courier. Last mile delivery is most expensive for courier companies; however, progress and usage of drones to deliver products at the consumer end will dramatically reduce the cost and increased revenue.

Agriculture /Crop monitoring with precision:

As drone in service we can monitor the progress of crops and gather the data with full precision. Furthermore, constant monitoring will aid in evaluating crop quality, allowing critical actions to be made before it is too late. Pests are the primary cause of crop damage. Using drones for integrated pest and

Insect management is the most effective way to protect crops from crop damage. Controlling insects and other pests using insecticides and pesticides reduces agricultural damage.

Obtaining information and delivering disaster-response supplies:

As we all know, natural disasters may be devastating, and the true and genuine loss in a calamity can be thoroughly and precisely acquired by using a drone in the disaster region. In the event of a flood, landslide, Fire or earthquake, when the route may be closed for any cause, drone surveillance is useful for assessing loss and casualties, as well as planning out rescue operations.

Geographic mapping of inaccessible terrain and locations, drones for search and rescue operations, Deep-sea and Underwater Drones for sea exploration research, are some of the applications, and there are numerous others that will increase the number of uses for drones. As Artificial Intelligence advances, we will have technologically superior drones.
