There is so much waiting for drone pilots in the exciting future of 2020 for the US and beyond. Since we can all agree that drones are much more than cool gadgets to play with and for the hobbyists, understanding how they can be practically put to use is important to appreciate them personally and professionally. As time moves on, commercial drone use is predicted to be the biggest growth sector in all technological uses. Commercial uses are exploding everywhere and regulations and sales are struggling to keep up. Here are just a few of the impacts that they can make this year.
Drone impacts into 2020
From missing children to a distress call from hikers, emergency services are one of the best ways that drones can be truly helpful in tricky situations where spotting people in need can be dangerous in and of itself. The more accurate the drone is at locating people in need, the better and faster the response can be.
Similarly, delivering supplies as well as monitoring disasters such as wildfires, floods and drought can help keep everyone safe. Drones can even play a key role in helping prevent disasters in the first place.
Since human interaction with animals can be hard and dangerous, drones can help keep an eye on animal populations and see what needs to be done to help keep them safe from poachers as well as other activities or just pure enjoyment of watching certain species.
Within animals or humans, disease mapping can also be done with drones. Using mapping software, the relation between animal and human interaction in real-time can be tracked so that diseases can be contained and controlled as much as possible.
Planning for construction and construction itself
Drones can help plan for construction as well as neighborhoods so that urban development can be more accurate and even less disruptive to those close by. The use of drones also can extend to the construction process, which is still developing in commercial use.
Remote internet access
The internet is integral to how modern society operates. Drones, particularly those that are powered by solar or wind energy, can help make sure that reliable internet gets to where it needs to so that communication is as effective as possible.
Better sports filming
With human filming comes human error (and distraction). Drone-based cameras specifically for sports can offer a lot of benefits for a better, more detailed and easier view. It’ll be the next level for professional sports use.
Ads and movies
More and more films and ads are being shot by the aid of drones and it makes for better, unique footage that resonates with the audience. This is bound to increase even more in 2020.
Professional drone use in all of these situations — and more — requires the use of an experienced FAA-licensed pilot. If you’re interested in putting a drone in the air to help you and your business out, focus on bringing in the big leagues that will bring you the right benefits to match! It’s a brand-new year, and it’s all about making it the year of the drone.
