Top Facts You Need to Know about Drone Robotics and its Future

Do you know that drones are considered robots? To understand more, here are the top facts you need to know about drone robotics and its future.

What is Drone Robotics?

Robotics is the intersection of science, engineering and technology that produces machines, called robots, that substitute for (or replicate) human actions.

Drones, according to this source, fall under the type of robots called tele-operated robots. Tele-operated robots are mechanical bots controlled by humans. An example of drones like this are those used for detecting landmines in battlefields.

A tech forecast and insight report said there is an emerging breed of robots, including drones that are collaborative, mobile and increasingly intelligent. […]thanks to these new robots and drones- which will transform many industries ranging from agricultural to logistics to material handling to cleaning to retail and beyond- that the overall market will grow by a factor of nearly 3 and 7 in the next 10 and 20 years, respectively.

The report also lists the following robotic drones:

  • Agriculture drones – for data services and data scouts, and those that are multi-functional

* Data services are web services used to handle the programming logic for data virtualization in a cloud-hosted data storage infrastructure. Data scouts means sourcing and acquiring external data sets.

  • Last mile delivery drones
  • Consumer drones

Outlook for the Technology

Robotics and drones will continue to grow in demand, as studies show an increase in global spending for robotic systems and drones in the years to come.
