Using Drones for Safer and Smarter Cities

QNRF PR 0 145 Article rating: 4.9

Drones (aka Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are increasingly being used in various fields due to their free-space mobility and low cost. UAVs offer many advantages, for instance, they can be equipped with mounted devices, including cameras, sensors, and/or communication interfaces, allowing them to efficiently execute missions in an automated manner without being obstructed by ground restrictions. Moreover, they can also perform on-demand tasks without the need to be always activated, which permits the reduction of energy and maintenance costs.
