Reshaping the drone technology
With the introduction of drones in the commercial market an outburst in the variety of ways it is used has been observed. Still there are many improvements that are waiting to take place in the technology. Recently a great advancement took place in drones when Airobotics a tech based startup became the first to develop drones which can be operated without any human intervention.
They named it as “Optimus” the drone which do not require any human intervention for its flight operations although humans will still be needed to run the system at any point. The drone is customizable quad copter with the ability to carry a payload of 22lbs.

Optimus can serve as a multipurpose drone that is by swapping sensors, it can be used from surveying to security surveillance.
Other developer and future prospects of drones
Many other drone developers are playing their part in the growing industry of drone technology by making newer and improved drones. Skycatch in Japan have been utilized for the purpose of surveying and was able to help complete a task in a few minutes which would have taken weeks. Now after the removal of the requirement of license for operating by Federal Aviation Authority more people will be able to take part in the growing drone industry towards a bright future.
