Drone technology is rapidly advancing, and drones are getting smaller every year. As a result, more commercial uses for drone technology are being discovered. For example, farmers use drones to monitor fields while construction companies use them to inspect buildings and sites without having to send employees up in tall equipment such as cranes or scaffolding. But how else have these machines changed our world, and how big are they? Keep reading to find out.
How Big Are Commercial Drones?
Commercial drones come in all shapes and sizes, from small nano drones to large industrial drones. The size of a drone depends on its intended use. For example, a nano drone might be used for reconnaissance or surveillance, while an industrial drone might be used for transporting goods.
The smallest commercial drones are about the size of a tennis ball. These nano drones can fly for up to 10 minutes and have a range of about 1 kilometre. They are often used for reconnaissance or surveillance. The largest commercial drones are about the size of small cars. These industrial drones can fly for up to 4 hours and have a range of up to 100 kilometres! They are often used for transporting goods.
Ways On How Drones Has Changed The World
Drones have quickly become a staple in many industries, and there’s no doubt that they will continue to change the way we do things. Here are some of the most notable ways drones have changed the world so far:
1. Changed The Face Of Warfare
Commercial drone companies have been supplying drones to the military for years. However, it wasn’t until recently that the general public became aware of just how important drones have become in the military.
2. Changed The Way We Do Business
Commercial drones are being more and more to conduct business. They are already being used in the construction, agriculture, and energy industries.
3. Changed How We Deliver Packages
Drones haven’t just changed how humans deliver things; they have also allowed us to deliver packages autonomously. The logistics industry has been working for years now on creating self-driving delivery drones to carry items directly to customers’ doorsteps or other designated areas.
4. Changed How We Capture Live Videos And Photos
Media companies are increasingly utilizing drones to take live footage from unique angles that would not be possible without them. Drones have even made it safer for journalists to report news stories in dangerous locations since they can capture footage from a safe distance. Some commercial drone companies even offer live video and photo sharing options, which enable other users to view drone-captured videos and photos as they happen.
5. Changed How We Teach Our Children
Since the beginning of 2016, American public schools have been using drones for STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education in an effort to promote careers in these fields. The drones are equipped with sensors that allow them to perform tasks such as obstacle course navigation or searching for objects buried underground.
6. Changed The Way We See The World
Many commercial drone companies offer aerial photography and videography services so that users can capture stunning images from high up above – views that would not be possible without a camera-equipped Drone.
7. Changed How We Get Around
As mentioned earlier, there are companies that are currently working on self-driving drones that can be used to deliver goods. There are also companies that are working on passenger drones that can be used to transport people from one place to another. The first passenger drone service is expected to launch in Dubai in 2020.
In conclusion, the drone industry has changed a wide variety of industries, including but not limited to farming, construction, media production, and logistics. Not only that, but drones have also changed how we do business in many ways. They have also changed how we travel from place to place and view the world completely differently.
