Drones to Search Find and Rescue Victims Faster
Drones have been a big topic of discussion in the public sphere for the past few years. Some have concentrated on how drones are used by defense and intelligence forces to track and assassinate members of terrorist groups; others have concentrated on the use of drones by police authorities to conduct surveillance and the privacy implications of such activities; and others have concerned themselves with the economic impact of drones and their expected use by companies such as Amazon to disrupt the delivery market. One area that has shown significant promise for drone technology while not necessarily receiving a level attention equal to the use cases described above is the area of search and rescue.
