‘Have confidence in drones’
16 March 2017
International drone expert ConsortiQ is urging organisations to hold onto their confidence in the technology after reports of the sector reaching its peak.
This public appeal comes as rising drone startup closures and slow adoption rates have sparked reports of the sector reaching ‘peak drone’. However, the industrial drone consultant argues otherwise.
Helen Cope, Marketing Manager at ConsortiQ explained, “Many people don’t have faith in drones, yet we urge the wider public not to forget about the many benefits these incredible vehicles have and continue to bring to a wide range of applications. Beyond photography and other ‘novel’ uses, drones are saving lives in direct and indirect ways.
“All of the emergency services including fire and rescue, police and search and rescue (SAR) are transforming the way they operate thanks to exploring the uses of drone and the increased flexibility it gives to them. What’s more, hazardous sectors such as construction, engineering and oil and gas benefit from this improved safety, using camera drones to inspect dangerous sites and machinery, with personnel carefully controlling the vehicle rather than putting their lives at risk. This aspect alone is transforming numerous industries for the better. The need to invest in and support drone research development and implementation is integral to building a safer, more efficient future.”
These reports of ‘peak drone’ come as the UK Government launched a wider debate into the safety of drones, sparking a public dialogue on drone usage, inviting feedback from the public as well as active drone users.
Cope continued, “This debate should not be seen as limiting the industry or marking it at crisis point, but instead it paves the way for a brighter future. Such focused attention towards drones only highlights how integral they have come to many operations. Using the feedback and insight this dialogue is to gain, the sector is only set to drive further forward.”
