Swarms of drones paint 3D images in the sky

From advertising, food delivery and firefighting to the military, construction and agriculture, drones are being used in more and more industries.

The History of Drones

Drones have a long history. The earliest known record of an unmanned aerial vehicle used in warfare dates from July 1849: During the Austrian fire balloon attack on Venice, around 200 balloons, each equipped with a bomb, were launched from land and thrown into the city with a timed fuse . The first military drone was used in World War I in 1917; it is known as the Ruston Proctor Aerial Target. The design and use of drones has evolved drastically since the first radio-controlled aircraft.

In 2013, Amazon announced that it would use drones to deliver its packages in the future, and Amazon boss Jeff Bezos wished for a “sky full of robots”. From then on, drones also became popular with a wide audience.

After their introduction, critics predicted that recreational drones would soon disappear – they were a fun technology that lacked longevity.

What are drones used for today?

Drones are experiencing a renaissance today as they offer safety and efficiency in many industries. They fly today in all shapes and sizes, helping in many fields such as agriculture, construction, emergency response and firefighting.

Rabih Bou Rached, founder of FEDs Drones, told Euronews that drones help farmers work more efficiently and sustainably:

“If I start flying each season, I’ll get up-to-date data. By evaluating and comparing the data, we can calculate yields and predict disease spread.”

Barq EV, a provider of intelligent and sustainable mobility solutions, wants to change the world of urban delivery. Delivery motorcycles are being replaced by delivery drones to reduce carbon emissions and traffic on the roads.

Fadi Al Wadi, Marketing Manager at Barq EV, said: “The new drone technology will change the delivery industry. Most importantly, internal combustion engines, which cause many environmental problems and pollution, will gradually become obsolete. The goal of every electric brand is a greener world.”

future of drones

The next step is the development of passenger drones. The manufacturers’ race in this area is in full swing. Given the security concerns, rollout will still take a while. Still, flying cars, predicted as early as the 1950s, could populate the skies in the not-too-distant future.
