Drones

  1. 1. Drones Today and Tomorrow Patricio Forbes Jorge Quintanilla
  2. 2. What is a drone? Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVS), also known as drones, are aircraft either controlled by ‘pilots’ from the ground or increasingly, autonomously following a pre-programmed mission.
  3. 3. Droid is not a Drone
  4. 4. What are they for? They can be programmed or being controlled for many things, nevertheless the point of using them is not risking human lives and to use less gasoline than bigger aircrafts.
  5. 5. Some ideas... Amazon wants to use drones for air delivery… But there are limitations. Drones can not be at flight more than an hour or carry to much weight, so the packs must be small and delivered in short distances.
  6. 6. Military The US government has developed a drone that can be used as an airship to battle their wars. These drones can fly for longer times, longer distances and can carry more weight, unfortunately they are not for sale...
  7. 7. Military controversies? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WsLoYeA UewM
  8. 8. Programming problems? Drones still have their code and that can still be hackable by an outsider with bad purposes, the armed drones from the army can turn into terrorists.
  9. 9. Conservative thinking People might not like the idea of UAVs used for military purposes for that and other reasons, they prefer old fashioned airplanes with a pilot in it.
  10. 10. Other Uses Drones can be equipped with cameras, which provide aerial pictures and videos of sport’s events. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlCpUXi MdzM
  11. 11. Drones In The Near Future The FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) believes there will be around 20,000 drones in the sky by 2017, although some say that figure will be much higher.
  12. 12. Nano-Drones Nano drones are becoming every day more of a reality. Drones are becoming smaller and smaller every single day. Nano drones will be capable of surveillance without being detected.
  13. 13. Farming Drones Agriculture is one of the mayor industries. Farms are bigger with less personnel and are hard to manage. Drones, with the help of special algorithms, will be able to analyze crops in big fields to see if they need water or protection against plagues.
  14. 14. Have you ever been lost? Call a drone… In the future, drones equipped with precise GPS systems will be able to locate a person in need of help, and guide them to whichever place they need to be.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mB9N fEJ0ZVs
