The unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have become a part and parcel of the military and commercial sector. It has also invaded the entertainment and recreational sector with the advent of nano drones. The advantages associated with the UAVs have surpassed any other available technology in the market, and thus, the development in the UAV technology has been witnessing a constant rise with the passing time. The UAVs have become more versatile for consumer and industrial market with the reductions in their power, components and form, which enable them to carry heavier payloads. The increasing applications of UAVs across military and commercial sector have necessitated the development of UAVs with increased fuel efficiency and flight endurance. Hence, the propulsion system is a key component of UAVs in achieving the mentioned features.
Drones have spread their utility across various industries and unmanned aerial vehicles are now being used for non-military purposes as well, such as, oil and gas pipeline surveillance, wind mill monitoring, and crime surveillance. This phenomenon has definitely changed the industrial scenario globally, but on the other hand this has led to an increase in air traffic. To tackle the problem of air traffic, the demand of UAV sense and avoid system has escalated over a few years, which prevents drones from colliding with each other, or heading towards other obstacles, causing collateral damage.
The integration of modern precision farming technologies aims at combining the whole farm management system to deliver higher yields while at the same time achieving sustainability. Precision farming technology has made the farm smarter by bringing in wireless data communications making it easier for the farmers to monitor the entire chain of activities while also controlling the profit generation.
Precision farming techniques are a step towards improving the conventional agriculture practices. These result in better yield, proper management of resources and incorporation of advanced technology, thereby finding great applicability in the agricultural industry.
