Recent years have been a breakthrough for UAVs. But how did it happen that drones gained such a popularity? Why this technology is so ubiquitous and where that leaves us? In order to answer these questions, we should look a bit more closely at UAVs history and how it affected our world. Fortunately, I found an interesting infographic by PureFunds that brings us closer to answering these questions.
The infographic chronologically shows the most important projects and historical events that have contributed to the spread of UAVs in the past. We will find out about origins of the word “drone”, information about why this technology was needed in the past and why it’s needed today. Interestingly, authors try to foresee how drones will affect the economy and what will be their role in the forthcoming years. It’s definitely worth to look at it.
