Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), sometimes known as drones

These are used for a variety of jobs, from routine to extremely dangerous.

These robotic-looking planes can be seen practically everywhere

Drones were initially created for the aerospace and military industries

because of the increased efficiency and safety they bring, they have entered the public

These robotic UAVs fly independently and with varying degrees of autonomy.

The level of autonomy for a drone can vary from remotely piloted

where a person controls its motions, to advanced independence

 where it uses a network of sensors and LiDAR detectors to determine its movement.
