Pavel Tatarinstev, head of R&D, explains that drones not only perform aerial performances or take landscape photos on social media but also help to save people and prevent crime.
UAVs will represent 10% of the European aviation market (or €15 billion) over the next decade, according to the Transnational Corporation and State Control. UAVs are very necessary because of their efficiency and versatility. They can accurately locate accidents, operate in hazardous environments, and easily reach hard-to-reach areas. UAVs are often used for surveillance, as they can detect fires (hidden active fireplaces) with a thermal camera, predict problems with the structure of facilities and buildings, control traffic, and road conditions.
Also, suppliers offer a global program that controls both drones and drone squadrons and supports the majority of automated air systems compatible with (DJI, MikroKopter, Microdrones, MavLink), and thus provide drones, And the program is even more.
In 2017, Dubai Police became the first government agency in the Middle East to use advanced UAV solutions in its daily operations. This awareness has improved timing and significantly reduced emergency response time.
The drones are connected to police operating rooms, using 4G technology, and can broadcast a live clip of traffic jams or accidents. This year, Dubai police unveiled a hydrogen drone, used to monitor mountains and seamounts.
The American police also use drones to monitor the movements of suspects, collect evidence, identify perpetrators, and thus enforce the law remotely. There is no need for drones when it comes to police officers or public officials, which can result in loss of life. Another example is how investigators in Morton, Illinois, are using drones to recreate 3D models of traffic accidents to accurately identify their root causes.
Local police in Ensenada, Mexico, has significantly reduced the number of crimes by buying a single drone to keep the areas that are the source of the most common emergency calls. The drone makes an average of 25 flights a day. As a result, more than 500 suspects were arrested in one year; home theft was reduced by 30%, and the overall crime situation improved by 10%.
In 2017, the Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency, in eliminating the effects of natural disasters, used drones that were more than 3,500 times. It has often been used to extinguish forest fires and save people from collapsed buildings with indoor thermal cameras.
UAVs can also be used to determine humanitarian conditions. Scientists at the University of South Australia have therefore designed a drone capable of measuring heart rate and respiratory rate, which is three to six meters from humans. With precise results, such as those obtained in an agreed manner. Scientists say that drones will see, hear, and feel very long distances, using technological advances.
Given these examples – and the rapid adoption of UAV technology on the market – we can expect that these aircraft will soon become a normal part of daily life, like cars and household appliances. This seems to be happening faster than we already think.
