What Are Drones Used For? 31 Uses For Flying Drones and UAV.
Hello, my name is Ben Lavrov and I used to learn the drone aerial photography business in this video. I’m, going to give my answer to the question. What are drones used for and list thirty-one uses for flying drones and UAV drones or UAV unmanned aerial vehicles are being employed in ever-increasing areas of life.
Apart from the fact that they are small light and maneuverable drones have many other uses. If the task is dulled. Dirty or dangerous, it makes far more sense to send in the drone. It seems. Barely a week goes by without new uses for drones, being imagined and realized.
So here is my list. If you can think of any, I’ve missed and please add a comment under this video. The first and most obvious uses aerial photography. If there’s, one thing most people consider when they think of uses for drones, its aerial photography.
It’s, a huge field with lots of spin-offs and niche areas. It’s, the basis of the whole civil UAV industry and the entry point for most, if not all, drone, pilots, drone, aerial, photography and filming is an industry and a service in itself.
Number two film and TV footage. Film and TV companies were very quick to take advantage of the burgeoning drone technology. They tend to have larger budgets for new equipment and the latest gadgets. The footage and shots achievable from hexacopters and octocopter x’carrying broadcast grade cameras have proved they justify the investment.
Perhaps you can remember that most aerial shots on TV dramas and documentaries were either created using a camera boom or captured from the helicopter. Now, drone footage is commonplace and while booms and helicopters still have their uses, a new aerial footage has added much to these programs number three aerial mapping.
There was a time when Google Earth and Google Maps was state-of-the-art, but there’s. So much more to do with mapping the planet. Surface, drones, designed and equipped for mapping and program for flying grid patterns are slowly building up a very detailed picture of our home planet number four archaeological digs and research.
It’s. Long been known that aerial photos can reveal clues about the history hidden in the landscape. Some sites are only fully appreciated from the air. You only have to think of the Nazca Plains in Peru.
One of the many uses for drones is in the field of archaeological research time, weather and budget can prohibit the use of manned aircraft at a site, but a quick scan of the area from 300 feet using a small drone can be like switching on a light.
Suddenly all is revealed and made clear number five filming marine wildlife. No doubt you’ve, seen in the press or on social media, those spectacular shots of pods of whales or a mother and a car shot from a few hundred feet.
It has given us a view that was denied to most of us a few years ago. Apart from the spectacle, there are all kinds of research advantages enabled by the use of drones at sea. Drones can be launched from the shore, but the real benefits are out on the open ocean.
However, drone pilots at sea need to have particularly good handling and navigation skills. There are a few options for emergency landings and even if you flown the UAV back to base, it may have to land it on a moving vessel, some have learned the hard way that it is not easy and watched as their precious drone lands are not safely On deck, but in the water number, six filming land wildlife, the Earth’s, wildlife provides an endless source of joy and Wonder in order to reserve it as close quarters without causing any disturbance.
Film and TV companies have devised all kinds of cams Dropcam done: cam log, cam etcetera. They all work well up to a point, but there is no substitute for aerial shots and the bird’s eye view. Sometimes sufficient aerial footage is achieved by flowing just a few feet off the ground, but all herds need to be filmed top down from the overhead.
You can make such clicks up with drone footage captured around the subject at a height only just above it number 7 and approaching. The only disappointing aspect to wildlife documentaries is that they frequently include references to the damage done by humans to wildlife, habitat for the larger mammals of Africa and other continents.
There is also the ugly reality of poaching drones are now being used in the fight against poachers, and it is a fight for these men are armed and dangerous. A drone that can pick up tracks or even follow suspects is the ideal tool for the job it’s quieter and cheaper than a helicopter and being unmanned.
There is no risk of anyone being shot by poachers alerted to its presence. Number 8, environmental and meteorological monitoring high and medium altitude drones that fly autonomously for days on end are searching the earth and gathering data on the weather and the environment.
Number 9 police work. The police service has made good use of drone technology. Unfortunately, due to budget constraints, the amount of use varies from County to County here in the UK, a DJI phantom or inspired in the back of a patrol car can be quickly sent up to film or photograph the scene of a car accident.
The savings in time spent on site by the officers could be significant, not to mention the delays and frustrations caused the motorists, while the road or lane is closed, number 10 search and rescue the ability of drones to see from viewpoints denied to crew on foot makes Them article allows during search and rescue missions when people are lost, injured or in distress.
It is not always possible to send in an SAR helicopter. The location and the weather may rule out any manned aerial. Vehicle rescuers arriving on the scene may use unmanned aviation to assess the situation and to direct rescuers on foot number eleven property or real estate photography.
This is one of the aerial photography niche errors mentioned in the opening. Paragraph of this video estate agents have been quick to take up drone filming in order to help promote and sell property. The ability to display particularly large properties, with acres of garden or pasture attempted fires to make the journey and to close the sales number twelve domestic roof inspections, storm damaged, debris, blocked, gutters leaks in the upstairs rooms.
All these are sources of worry to householders and landlords. Ladders are risky and scaffolding costs can rapidly escalate far better to send up a drone to inspect the roof. The video footage can be kept for review or forwarded on to other contractors with one clever device.
You’ve, eliminated the risk of ladders and avoided the cost of scaffolding. You’ve, also prevented yourself from being defrauded by a roofing contractor, quoting for unnecessary work. Number thirteen industrial roof inspections.
If you can do it for homes, you can also do it for factories and industrial units. It’s only a matter of scale with large industrial complexes. There are huge benefits in terms of cost savings and the lessening of risk to humans through physical inspection of hard-to-reach areas.
Number fourteen planning inspections. Local government inspectors are always keen to find new ways to improve efficiency and make their funds go further. Well, that’s. The theory, at least drones can be used to check that new buildings.
Extensions and other work is in compliance with the local planning laws. Number 15 Solar Park inspections. There has been a boom in the building of solar parks in the UK countryside in the past few years, as well as all over the world.
They have appeared in all kinds of places on farmland and abandon airfields. They cover large areas with thousands of panels to inspect the mall on foot for damaged or inoperative PV cells as a labor-intensive task.
So one of the uses for drones is to scan them row by row with the correct type of camera. It is possible to identify any malfunctioning cell number 16, environmental compliance inspections. How can you tell if the farm, factory or industrial area is compliant with local environmental laws and rulings? Inspections on foot are one option, but the bird’s.
Eye view of a UAV will capture the conclusive evidence and exonerate those who might be under suspicion for non-compliance. Number 17 drone deliveries. Most people have heard of this. One amazon are now conducting tests at a semi secret location.
Here in the UK, however, I think we’re, still a long way for the really important stuff, like the livery of beer and pizza, number 18 disaster relief in areas devastated by Wars and natural disasters.
It becomes essential to know what loads are open and what bridges are intact. Disaster relief agencies and military personnel can use drones to quickly gather information while the expensive and less numerous helicopters and land vehicles load up with supplies.
Time is short and the sooner they have created an accurate map of the situation, the more quickly and efficiently they can deliver supplies to where they are most needed. Number 19 emergency medical supplies in poorer countries where roads are dust in the summer and impassable mud in the rainy season people die for want of basic medicines.
Drones can be used to deliver small payloads of medicines to remote villages. Number 20 news filming the news helicopters will continue to fly for years to come, but there are many instances where a drone is the better tool for the job consider outside broadcast units at an event or situation that would benefit from an aerial shot, but where the Presence of a helicopter would be disruptive or dangerous number 21 sports filming with arrival on the market of drones that follow an individual.
It’s now possible to obtain footage of, for example, skiers, cyclists, skateboarders and surfers, and all kinds of sports in ways that were impossible before the developments in unmanned aviation systems.
Technology number 22 pipeline and power line, inspection UAV can be designed and modified to carry out any pass. That is dull, dirty or dangerous. Pipeline and power line inspection fall into at least one of these categories.
It’s, a lot more cost-effective to conduct a preliminary inspection remotely before sending out the crew by helicopter or by land transport number 23 tunnel inspections. Did you see the footage of the Crossrail tunnels on the news just after they had completed the main sections underneath London, they sent a drone through them to show what they had achieved.
The tunnels are very large. They’re flying a drone within them is not difficult, but UAV could also be used to inspect smaller tunnels. Number 24 precision – agriculture with fixed-wing UAV agriculture is one of the biggest growth areas for fixed-wing Jonze.
Farmers have found all kinds of uses for them and have been quick to employ these robotic friends, to help improve yields and for more effective pests and disease control. Uav can pinpoint breakouts of pests and disease within a specific area.
The treatment can then be applied directly onto that area alone, instead of the entire field. This enables a huge saving on the cost of treatment, as there is far less wasted spraying it’s, a sort of agricultural surgical strike, number 25 advertising and promotional videos.

This is an area that is generating a lot of interest, obviously the bills more to the younger adults and teenagers, but, like all games of this type, anyone of any age can play combining drone racing with VR makes it accessible to all, regardless of age.
And/Or ability number 28 making it art with drones. Artists are often quick to spot potential of new technology as a tool that will enable new ways of expression a swarm or should that be a flock of drones, each with one light or several flying information or moving.
Like a murmuration of Starling can produce dramatic and eerie effects: number 29 air craft inspection, so you ‘ Ve got an Airbus a380 in a corner of the airport and you need to inspect it from nose to tail what better way than to fly.
An aerial camera along its length number 30 internet access. There are many who yearn to join our connected world and to add their devices to the Internet of Things. High-Flying UAV can extend the internet and remote areas where the land-based infrastructure is basic and incomplete.
Number 31. Military drones. Lastly, there is warfare, it’s, a controversial topic that generates heated debate, but whatever the legal and moral implications there are distinct benefits from using armed and unarmed UAV on the battlefield.
There are micro drones that can fly around the corner over a wall and into a building. There are fixed wing and rotary drones that can be quickly launched on the battlefield to provide intelligence on the enemy movements and positions.
Then there are the more well-known armed drones that can launch missiles at targets so remotely that the unfortunate victims are probably unaware of their impending doom thanks for watching. I hope you found this interesting and useful.
