Drones have become valuable tools for giving police officers airborne eyes on active scenes, such as responding to emergencies, conducting search and rescue missions, and for collecting evidence from privileged vantage points.
Autonomous drones are helping utilities, engineering firms, and government agencies generate detailed inspections of hard-to-reach assets with higher precision, less pilot training requirements, and less ground risk than the incumbent manual solutions commonly used in the past.
The first chapter of the drone market story was written by hardware-centric vehicles. However, similar to what's happened in other technology disciplines, the next chapter is being written by software-driven solutions.
Drones have become valuable tools for giving police officers airborne eyes on active scenes, conducting search and rescue missions, and for collecting evidence from privileged vantage points.
Traditional techniques for asset inspection that require costly heavy machinery, create societal disruption and force inspectors into dangerous situations have led inspection team managers to search for alternatives.
With the myriad benefits autonomous drones provide to their pilots and teams, it is no wonder that autonomous drone fleets can grow faster than manual alternatives.
Drones have emerged as valuable public safety tools to gain situational awareness from privileged vantage points, aid officers with faster decision-making and help ensure accountability for everyone involved.
Existing drone regulations were written for conventional manual drones, but the advent of trustworthy autonomy enables new modes of operation and regulatory approaches.
