9 Reasons Drones Are Actually Awesome | HuffPost

Imagine a future chock full of unmanned vehicles, more commonly referred to by the ominous, near-Star Warsian term “drones.” Did your brain just go to a scary place, where missiles and James Bond lasers are raining down on us all? Well, you’re certainly not alone.

But what about the awesome side of the future? With jetpacks and whole meals in a single pill and robots that rub your feet after a long day of jetpacking! Drones can be part of that future, too, and they almost certainly will be — which of course won’t make them any less terrifying.

Despite the fear they often rightfully elicit, here are nine reasons why drones are actually awesome (as well as a few why they aren’t):

25 Reasons To Love Drones | Popular Science

We know what you’re thinking: love drones? Those ominous, free-floating, sometimes unseen killers that have walked our nation out onto some perilously thin ice, geopolitically and ethically? Even the word itself is loaded. No one can agree on what a drone is, exactly, or whether they should be referred to as drones at all. Turns out we don’t just think about drones. We have feelings about drones.
But yes, there is plenty to love beyond the headlines about the Middle East. Once the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) establishes airspace rules, which is likely to happen next year, the drone industry could fuel a decade-long, $82-billion economic boom, according to a study done by the industry’s leading trade group. Already, one analyst estimates the global market for small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) at $250 million to $300 million. The truth is, we’re witnessing a Kitty Hawk moment—the start of an era in which drones will change the world and the way we live in it. They’ve saved lives overseas; at home, they will make our cities and grids smarter, keep people safer, and help save our planet. And, as you’ll see on these pages, they can be fun, too.
1) They’ll soon deliver your pizza
In the past year, unmanned drones have delivered textbooks, medical supplies, pizza, burritos, and a nearly full case of cold beer. The FAA grounded such commercial flights until new regulations are in place, but that hasn’t stopped companies like Amazon from trying to tackle the technical and logistical questions associated with delivery by flying robot.
Once the skies are (inevitably) cleared for such activity, this trend will go far beyond flying a Domino’s across town. The start-up Matternet is designing a node-based delivery system to extend drones’ range. Its quadcopters will land at stations to either swap out spent batteries for new ones or relay payloads to fully charged drones. Later this year, Matternet plans to test the system by delivering medical supplies to remote regions of Africa.

Public Access - Why drones are the next big thing in business

In 2013, commercial drone users were concerned. Focus on drone strikes and military applications in the media had shaped public thinking on drones – and it wasn't positive. So much so that insiders preferred their technical name, "unmanned aerial vehicles" or UAVs, just to stand apart from the ominous drones. As Peter Singer, Director of the Brookings Institution's 21st Century Defense Initiative, told Huffington Post, "The public perception of this technology is being shaped by 1 percent of its actual use."

Fast forward just three years to 2016 and there's tangible evidence that public opinion on drones has softened. It's not uncommon to see drones hovering overhead at large public gatherings, with concert and festival goers waving at drones buzzing overhead. According to analysts at Business Insider, while defense uses are still the largest share of the global aerial drone market, civilian use is booming, primarily buoyed by commercial applications.

More than just aerial delivery boys
Businesses like Amazon have seen a lot of press on using drones for deliveries – and that certainly is a tangible use case for UAVs – but potential applications for UAVs run much deeper than just overglorified delivery boys. Transportation reporter Joan Lowy of the Associated Press reports that commercial drone use is "the biggest game-changing technology in aviation since the advent of the jet engine."

So what other applications are drones good for? A quick scouring of the internet reveals references for drone use in filmmaking, disaster and emergency response efforts, and conservation work. According to Business Insider, drone software and hardware vendors are already helping customers with applications centered around agriculture, land management, energy, and construction. What's more, industry analysts at Owen Wyman cite that agricultural uses alone will make up an incredible 80 percent of the commercial UAV industry in the coming decades!

Why Drones and Smart Cities are Crucial Trends to Watch in 2017 |

One of the individuals I was fortunate enough to interview for my 20.17 Big Ideas for 2017 series, where I asked leading experts for their advice on the year ahead, was Greg McNeal, co-founder of AirMap. The hot startup ($15 million Series A funding round in 2016) has created a low-altitude airspace management system that's been already adopted by 125 US airports and counting. Moreover, thanks to partnerships with manufacturers like DJI and Intel, AirMap's system has been baked into 80% of today's drones.

McNeal, an an expert on drone regulation and policy, believes that understanding the rise of the "Smart City" of tomorrow will give you a leg up in 2017. Here's some of our conversation:

Fascinating topic. Why should the rise of the Smart City matter to the typical businessperson?

Demographic shifts show us that people are moving to cities in droves. We're becoming an increasingly urban nation: the city is the backdrop for all of the economic, commercial and social activities of our lives. And as cities become denser and more urban, they are relying on technology to help them accommodate the influx of new residents and improve quality of life for all.

Today, that takes the form of ridesharing and platforms for civic tech and data sharing. Tomorrow, cities will be the first use cases of mobility solutions that seem like science fiction. You'll hail a flying Uber for your daily commute - and much sooner than you think.

Cities have become some of the most vibrant and progressive places for technological development. They have dense cellular networks to facilitate connectivity and information sharing. They've become hubs for Internet of Things sensors that can help us describe our world. And they bring together bright, creative people in close proximity to each other, catalyzing innovation.

What technologies in particular are you paying close attention to, with respect to smart cities?

Top of mind for me in the smart cities space: platforms for autonomous navigation, connectivity (cellular and GPS), civic tech, and of course, drones.

Smart city technology often starts with the need to deliver services more rapidly and more efficiently to residents. Drones have a tremendous amount of potential to help cities better serve the people who live in them. Today, thousands of drones are already being used to improve city life: drones are being used to document accident scenes, support first responder activities, monitor construction sites, and more. In 2017, we'll see drones take on more of these responsibilities, and tasks that are dull or dangerous for city workers.

This is just the very beginning. In the future, connected drones will navigate autonomously through cities. Millions of both commercial and civic drones will fly billions of missions to serve city residents. With that, I suspect that cities will want to make rules about where drones can take off, land, and operate above city streets - guidelines that will determine how the industry grows and cities flourish.

AirMap's obviously had a big year in 2016. What's next for you in 2017?

The vast majority of drones operating today with network connectivity receive airspace data to help the operator make safe flight decisions - and they likely get that info from AirMap. More than a million drones, the vast majority worldwide, are powered by AirMap (our main competitor is non-consumption) and we expect that trend to continue.

In 2017, we will be expanding our network of stakeholders, which presently includes more than 125 airports. And we will continue to work with the FAA and provide thought leadership locally and globally to ensure that cities and their residents benefit from drones, and that drones are used in safe and accountable ways. We'll also be announcing partnerships with major corporations that share our vision of the future.

With that said, it's difficult to predict what will happen in 2017. We're only 18 months old, and already we have a team of 45, and 90% market share. Who knows what the future will bring - but we're excited about all of the opportunities on the horizon.

How do you feel that AirMap fits into the architecture of the smart cities of tomorrow?

AirMap's airspace management platform is the only one connected to over a million drones, so we're already playing a role in cities today. Drones are about to become an indispensable part of city life, and we're talking to state and local stakeholders to help create an environment that allows drones to flourish, while also giving local concerns a seat at the table. We're building a technology solution - which many people call Unmanned Traffic Management - to help make drones a part of everyday life.
