Drones in Delivery

When it comes to deliveries, the modern age demands convenience. People across America can order items online and receive them on their doorsteps that very same day. Amazon is one retail giant that uses drones to deliver lightweight packages (only about 5 LBS) to certain locations. The health care industry is another field that often uses drones to make important deliveries—they can deliver essential medical supplies. Deliveries so far are likely to involve medical prescriptions and smaller food items. However drones have been approved for delivery of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) in emergency situations. Deliveries often involve delivery Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BLOS). Drones in shipping are being considered for heavier payloads.

Real Estate Drones | The New York Times.

Drones Real Estate

Drones are highly useful in the real estate market, especially where luxury homes are concerned. Many buildings are now advertised not only with pictures of the home’s interior, but also with detailed bird’s-eye views that can capture entire landscapes. Drones are often used in real estate to take high-quality pictures and videos of homes in order to provide sellers with an accurate picture of the property.

Drones in Agriculture

This is perhaps one of the most important industries that have benefited from drones. Drones are used in the agriculture industry to map out landscapes and send farmers information such as the condition of crops and a general index of the property. Drones can save farmers a substantial amount of time by identifying problems for them. According to AERIAL INFLUENCE, based in Elburn, Illinois, drones can analyze property for water and fertilizer efficiency; spot, seed, spray and spread fertilizer; save time with inspection of crops in the field; increase your yields by finding problems early; and create a flight plan over the field with digital on-screen mapping.

The uses for drones in the world of agriculture are limitless, according to AERIAL INFLUENCE with headquarters in Elburn, Illinois.
