A drone is an automated, unmanned and mechanized vehicle that is mobile in nature and can be used to perform varied tasks, as opposed to a robot, which performs the same task repeatedly (e.g., a manufacturing robot). Drone types include unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs), unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) and unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs).A drone system relies on a combination of hardware and software components to achieve successful takeoff, flight and landing. Drones are often controlled by ground control stations. They have rotors or fixed wings, sensors, navigation systems and gyroscopes for stability. “UAV” is the most common term used to refer to drones, whereas the overall system that allows a drone to operate is called an “unmanned aerial system” (UAS).UAVs have been witnessing wide adoption across many military applications, including air strikes, surveillance, traffic monitoring, rescue and search operations, bomb threats, hostage situation control and fugitive tracking. UAVs do not pose any threat to human life, and thus government agencies are adopting this technology to counter critical situations.Drone technologies (e.g., UAVs, UGVs, USVs, UUVs) offer several advantages over other manned systems. Manned systems are typically operated by pilots from within the system, but drones are guided by the operators working from base stations, which reduces the risk to pilots’ lives in dangerous situations and carries out operations smoothly and efficiently. This reduces the financial constraints that would be required to purchase expensive aircraft or marine systems. Drones, however, pose severe threats to the privacy of local residents. They can be easily used for cyber espionage. Drone technologies can also be misused to spy on innocent individuals, breaching citizens’ privacy and civil liberties.
Drone integration in numerous industries is expected to explore untapped applications in the near future. Drones in the service sector are expected to continue to progress during the forecast period, with applications in UGVs, UAVs, anthropomorphic robots and domestic mobile robots (e.g., lawnmowers, cleaning robots) in emerging regions, including Brazil and India. Small intelligent drones present a huge opportunity in the near future. Many countries, especially in the Asia-Pacific region, have started large research projects in all areas of intelligent robotics.The drone market is at the initial stage in emerging regions, such as India and South Korea. Several developing countries are yet to observe their first adoptions. With increasing awareness, these regions are expected to observe proliferation in the adoption of drone systems, which in turn will drive the market in the long run.North America accounts for the largest share of the global drone market, followed by the Asia-Pacific region and Europe. Key market participants include General Atomics, Insitu Inc., AeroVironment, SZ DJI Technology, Autonomous Surface Vehicles, Oceaneering International, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman.
