Paul Jones Posted over 1 year ago Which application of drones excites or terrifies you the most? First, drones are just a tool. Any tool can be exploited. I think drones could be used to monitor traffic patterns in real time. Help with weather prediction and tracking. And definitely search and rescue - especially when fitted with infra-red or high tech cameras. I could see them used to deliver supplies to a localized incident such as a traffic accident, natural disaster or fire. Drones could also be equipped with WiFi or Micro Cell technology to increase bandwidth in an emergency situation. I would like to have a personal drone. It would save me trips running things my kids forgot to take to school.
