Advanced Technologies for Industry

Practical applications for UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), commonly referred to as “drones”, have progressed significantly in recent years as the technology has improved in tandem with a fall in its cost. Interest from both consumers and business in drones is growing, with new applications being developed rapidly for use across many industries including agriculture – one of the primary sectors expected to see sharp uptake of drone technology in the near future.
