There are plenty of uses for persistent, low-cost, self-guided drones in the sky. The potential uses for these friendly flying machines for individuals, businesses and governments are vast, and we’ll see them applied in ways we won’t necessarily see coming. We’re already using them, such as to remotely check pipelines and nuclear power plants, as Japan did after the earthquake and tsunami.
Another recent example is the use of drones for protecting populations of endangered animals. In Africa, drones are watching for poachers looking to illegally take endangered elephants, rhinos and other big game. In agriculture, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) will be used to monitor fields and herds. And really dangerous jobs like crop dusting will eventually be taken over by drones, something that’s already happened in places like Japan.
