AUVSI releases permit study of USA drone industry (April 2016)


Recommended Posts

Good question.  My best guess is that the most popular applications for UAVs in 5 years will be things we haven't thought of yet.  I remain unenthusiastic about drone delivery services as it's just too limited and not a good allocation of resources. A self driving UPS van with some kind of robotic delivery droid seems a lot more likely to me. The preplanned mission model whether for agricultural, inspection, survey or 3D modeling seems to have lots of room for new applications.  The real estate stuff, which is what I do, will be commonplace.  I shot a property earlier today that I never would thought would be good for aerial work, but the homeowner insisted, and the agent had to get it done to secure the listing.  That kind of thing is going to happen more and more.
