AI-powered Autonomous Drones for Enhanced Capabilities
With this piece, AI-TechPark explores new wings with extending the focus on the enhanced capabilities that AI-powered drones have to offer for the future
According to researchers from ETH Zurich and the University of Bologna, “a lightweight residual convolutional neural network (CNN) architecture”. They maximized the drone’s bite-sized power and memory limitations using DroNet.
Cheap and omnipresent drones have the potential to significantly increase and improve efficiencies in several areas. PwC projected drone solutions have a higher potential to replace $127 billion in the current business services and labor market. Drones will have or in fact, are having the biggest impacts on sectors like infrastructure, agriculture, aerial photography, internet services and transportation and logistics. Commercial drones are making a bigger impact in applications – which takes advantage of their ability to quickly and cheaply gather localized visual information. And these are the industries that are already benefiting from a cheap eye in the sky.
Let’s see how drones are making a bigger impact on sectors like agriculture and logistics.
How drones are making a move in the agriculture sector
In the agriculture sector, drones are being used in precision fertilizer program planning, weed and disease control programs, tree and land mapping crop spraying. How are they functioning? Areas like nitrogen-deficient ones in a crop can be clearly identified by drones with censored cameras.
And by using something similar to this, drone operators can figure out the presence of weed or diseases in the arable crops.
ACCORDING TO THE STUDY DONE ACCORDING TO THE STUDY DONE BY PWC, COMMERCIAL UPTAKE IS THE MAIN GROWTH AREA WITH SALES PREDICTED TO SOAR FROM 174,000 DRONES IN 2017 TO 805,000 UNITS BY 2021 AND ESTIMATE AGRICULTURE IS CURRENTLY ONE OF THE SECOND-LARGEST MARKETS FOR DRONES USED BEHIND THE CONSTRUCTION.
