5 Practical Implementations of Drone Technology to watch out for

Amazon's developments on its drone project 'Octocopter' was perceived as a game changer for logistics industry. Octocopter is an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) developed to facilitate home delivery of goods purchased online within half an hour. The ecommerce industry having already crossed 3 trillion dollar mark globally depends on a powerful supply chain for which drones can prove highly useful. Although still a lot needs to be done before we start receiving deliveries through drone but there are many practical uses of drones which will change the world for better.

Practical Implementations of Drone Technology

Following is a list of practical implementation of drones shaping the future.

1. Disaster Management

NASA has already started testing its drone fitted with infrared cameras which can detect wildfire before it gets out of control. The rescue and search operations can be very well facilitated with the help of drones. The new age drones are fitted with high resolution cameras with powerful optical zoom that can provide clear images which will help in locating people who need to be rescued.

2. 3D Mapping

The light weight drones can survey landscapes and take digital pictures which will be very helpful in creating 3 d maps of the place. This will be a much cheaper alternative than satellite imaging which will not only help military operations but also prove useful for agricultural purposes. PIX4D, a software company based out in Switzerland creates 3D-maps from drone images. It uses powerful software that helps in converting images into 3D maps.

3. Advertisements & Movies

The ad makers have already started exploiting limits of drones by capturing unprecedented shots. The light weight drones are ideal for shooting wildlife videos. US Geological survey uses a thermal imaging camera mounted on a drone to count Sandhill cranes at night. They use a 4.5 pound AeroVironment Raven which was developed for military purpose. Drones are being used to shoot political ad campaigns. Drones are also being used in shooting action scenes in big budget Hollywood flicks.

4. Sports photography

Whether capturing live matches by hovering over the field or shoot unique angle while performing extreme sports, drone have found high utility in the sports. The best part of these UAV's is that you can carry them in your bag pack and assemble them in minutes. The drones are all set to become a part of extreme sports gear.

5. Atmospheric Research

NASA is using UAV's to monitor the depletion of ozone layer and the harmful effects of UV rays. To better understand water vapour and ozone interaction, NASA is sending UAV's in Stratosphere. Stratosphere is the layer in which ozone resides. This will help in studying the effect of climate change which has become a major global concern.


Drones have a wide range of application for both domestic and commercial usage. The UAV technology is getting evolved to make lighter, faster and cheaper drones. In near future we can expect to see advanced drones hovering in the skies.

Saves you from retyping data from scratch

Additional issues: You received a scanned document which cannot be turned into MS Office formats in a way you need it - editable. Here you need a PDF converter that has OCR engine which can extract text from scanned documents, and that’s how PDF Converter Elite can help you.

Enables you to convert multiple PDFs at once

Keep your spreadsheets for future projects

Situation: You have received a financial record in PDF. You need to add information, delete some columns and add new ones. You want to save it as a template, as you will probably need it in the future again. What to do: Use custom PDF to Excel conversion and modify the look of your tables before conversion. Then just save the custom Excel template and that’s it. Next time you need it, it will take you a second to load it.

Make quick modifications of your PDF document

Situation: You have a PDF document, but you don’t need all the pages you need, or some pages need to be rearranged. That might sound complicated, but don’t worry. You don’t have to turn your PDF to MS Office format in order to modify the document. What to do: Use Edit options in PDF Converter Elite to delete certain pages, move them from one place to another, rotate or scale them.

Pick specific areas in the document

Situation: Again, you have a large PDF file that needs editing. Waiting for such a large file to convert is not necessary. What to do instead: Open a PDF in PCE program and just select areas you want to turn into editable format. You can select specific pages or just a paragraph, even a few sentences.
