An AI drone, also known as an autonomous drone, is a drone that can operate without human intervention. It is equipped with artificial intelligence technology that allows it to perform tasks such as navigation, obstacle avoidance and image recognition without the need for direct human control. This data allows an autonomous or assisted flight, which facilitates operation and increases accessibility. As a result, drones have become part of the intelligent mobility offerings that are now commercially available to businesses and consumers.
AI-based drones rely heavily on computer vision. This technology allows drones to detect objects as they fly and allows them to analyze and record information on the ground. Not only do drones now improve the industrial and commercial processes mentioned above, but delivery drones can also add a lot of value to logistics supply chains. While light shows focus on mapping drones in pixels, these more generalized applications will focus on mapping drones in subfunctions.
Building a drone involves connecting sensors and actuators with some type of processor so that the drone flies stably. By using drones to deliver blood donations, vaccines, medicines, anti-poison solutions, organ transplants and other medical supplies, the medical segment of drone delivery is gaining significant ground. The incorporation of AI allows drone suppliers to use data from sensors connected to the drone to collect and implement visual and environmental data. Between drone service providers and the company's internal services, there are more than 30 companies that use drones to deliver medical supplies.
The model for the future is one that uses hundreds or thousands of drones as a system, rather than individual drones.
