Unmanned aircraft vehicles (UAVs) or drones are being used more and more in various aspects of economic life. For businesses that realized and utilized their enormous potential are nowadays drones integral part of corporate processes. Their usage, even though it is still largely shackled by legal restrictions, saves firms notable time and funds. So where do drones create new opportunities for more efficient operations?
The most common use of drones is for aerial imaging of photos or videos. Drones have found their place in the entertainment industry, providing the filmmakers with a completely new perspective.

Equipped with special sensor, drones are a priceless tool in agriculture and for the farmers. During an aerial agroanalysis, drone collects a large amount of data in a short time that are consecutively used for the evaluation of crops’ health. Thanks to aerial agroanalysis, farmers can implement precautionary measures and avoid further damages.
Technological advancement of unmanned aircraft is also notable in the construction sector. Developers are using drones during project documentation to monitor the progress of the construction, making it much more effective. In just a few minutes, the drones can collect material for the creation of precise 3D models.
With increasing battery capacity and current growth of autonomous flight technology, the usage of drones for transportation in a global scale is only a matter of time and deregulation. The Swiss Post is already using drones to deliver packages to remote areas, saving time and money. Dubai went even farther and tested an autonomous Drone Taxi with carrying capacity of 2 passengers with a long-term objective of making it one of many transportation options for Dubai citizens.
These examples clearly illustrate the enormous potential of drones. Unfortunately, not always is their usage in alignment with safety regulations and current legislation and it is therefore necessary to be prepared for their potential misuse and know how to react.
