As part of ALPORA’s research in the field of innovation, we use a variety of tools to identify and describe in detail new and emerging trends at an early stage. Big Data analysis tools, such as the NETCULATOR, allow us to fully describe these trends and provide these latest insights: Drones.
Drones, also called unmanned aerial vehicles, are aircraft which operate without a human crew on board. They are either controlled from the ground or perform actions autonomously. They range in size from a few millimeters to several meters. Most drones are equipped with a camera, although increasingly smaller and lighter sensors are making new applications possible.
