The Future of Quadcopters

Date of this Version



"Drones & Quadcopters". 2019.


Quadcopter technology has been improving at a fast pace, and interest by the public and the media has increased even faster. Quadcopters are currently already capable of doing many useful things and their development in the industry is divided between a race among designers and manufacturers that make UAVs better, and the general public, who comes up with ingenious ideas to use them. People have actually discovered lots of useful applications for modern-day drones. Aside from their usage for military operations, intelligence and monitoring, they also have the potential of being employed in many other areas, for example logistics and transportation of small items, photography and filming, and assisting construction workers. Logistics companies, for example, depend upon fast, reliable meanings of transportation that are cheap and accessible, and for that, drones will probably play a meaningful role in the future.
