Drones are big right now. We are seeing them everywhere, and even in some places where they shouldn’t be. However, I think one application is being overlooked for the most part by the tech community – agriculture.
UAS (Unmanned Aircraft Sysytems) have the potential to revolutionize how we look at and maintain crops, facilities, and even applications like herding animals. Their ability to carry payloads like cameras, utilize GPS data, and their autonomy make them a technology that will have many agricultural applications. Right now FAA regulations need to catch up, but I look forward to a day when can see the full benefit of this technology.
