How does drone technology work?

From the user’s side, a drone may seem simple enough—a joystick to control its motion and a GPS module to track its whereabouts.

A drone needs two main aspects to function—connectivity and controls.

Drones need connectivity to: – detect signals from high-end satellites for navigation

– detect obstacles (using infrared rays) and reroute if needed

– communicate the drone’s flight details to the controller.

Drones need controls to: – watch over the drone’s aerodynamics while it is in flight

– calibrate the drone’s battery power as well as other readings

– capture 4K footage from the aerial view using built-in cameras.

With such a comprehensive range of features and possibilities, this technology is a hot favourite among tech giants who want to monetise it.

The prospects for the drone market look more promising than ever.
