Are you not curious of using drones while flying for capturing of videos from different angles ? Drones are yet very old technology and and majority of defence industry was using it from time of world war 2 . At later stage , its potential has been explored by business industry which have started to immerse in human life more .
Over the time drones technology has continuously been improves and have been powered with numerous of functionalities . Let’s look at the one of the trending drone named as ” Autonomous Drones” .
Let’s quickly understand about this .
It has been seen as general trend that wherever drone is seen , there is a person behind it who is operating it with remote control . Those primitive devices are now being replaced with new autonomous one . These devices can even be operated without pilots . The location of these drones can be monitored remotely by pilots and pilots can take control of them when it is absolutely necessary .
These technology giant autonomous device has capability to fly under navigation provided by GPS by using GPS ‘waypoints’ that facilitates autonomous fly possible .
Another category of drones has drones with flying capability even without availability of GPS . These devices are freed from various limitations and will fly autonomously in pilot’s sight or beyond , or may have got some limitation .
In present scenarios , various industries are making use of these Drones to fulfil their business goals . Drones are not being used to accomplish various task such as food delivery , asset inspections , inspection of dangerous areas and much more . Drones are more actively being used in industries like construction , transportation , agriculture , and more .
Drones With AI And IOT
Since drones are acquiring majority in marketplace , technology experts are trying to make it more technically giant with use of AI and IOT .
Drones which are inbuilt with sensor are being used in agriculture industry to monitor crops and plants so that bugs data in them can be acquired with ease .
Making drones AI enabled with make the drone smarter . Imagine Drone is recommending minerals that should be given to plants while it is getting infected . These functionalities are gaining popularity in various parts of the world . If AI and IOT has been integrated successfully in Drones , it has potential to completely change revolution making less human intervention .
Now that the positive side of Autonomous Drones . Let’s look at some challenges that autonomous drones might face in practical situation :
Although the newest category of autonomous drones are inbuilt with camera and deep learning , they are capable enough for autonomous navigation , but AI fails to offer expected outcomes . As a result pilot fails to get access of data for manual control .
There is still huge requirement of transmissions with higher bandwidth for remote monitoring . All we can do it just wait and watch for getting this problem solved and get technology advanced .
With the help of IoT Technology integration , connected drones will gain its significance . Autonomous drones which is connected with cloud will provide various advantages right from flying drones with remote operations , integration of new AI models in drones , updating of drones firmware directly from cloud , real time data recording and more .
These functionality with benefit various industries if pitfalls arising out of it will be solved .
Industrial Utilization Of Drones
Autonomous drones can be implemented across various industries which can provide us with real time insights to certain aspects , carry on weights which can be used by retail stores to arrange product delivery reducing human labour .
However the biggest challenge would be integration of technology and deployment of algorithms to meet customised task of industry .
But how these all will get possible totally depends on the outcome of future . Till the time AI & IOT technology experts explore more ways to make autonomous drones more technology advance . Our developers at Winklix is fully compatible to explore drones feasibility . Autonomous drones has lot more capabilities which are yet to be explored .
