Drone technology could be the solution to a number of major challenges in tomorrow’s society.

In a few years, drones will be sufficiently stable, intelligent and cheap that they will become an essential part of everyday life in the fields of transport, surveillance, mapping, etc.

Drones will revolutionise a number of industries.
