Recently, drone use by the general public and commercial business has witnessed an increase in activity in many different fields. Besides pesticide spraying, aerial photography and video broadcasting, drones have also seen use in the recent nuclear power plant accidents and other natural disasters for surveying, monitoring and inspections, as well as in academic research, goods and parcel transportation applications, surveying and inspection for construction and civil engineering projects. This trend is also expected to increase in the future.
