From chips to sensors to robotics, there is a growing ecosystem of drone software and hardware developers that cater to the drone industry. Until recently, most of the investment in drone technology came from the military and defense-focused companies. Now, dozens of companies from multiple sectors are investing in small technology firms, mostly startups, that are growing big valuations.
Although clear laws regarding drones are still being established, universities are considering ways to capitalize on the technology to enhance students’ education.
It seems everyone wants to be involved. The study of drone technology is interdisciplinary and groundbreaking. Students and professors of various disciplines are collaborating to discuss how the technology can be used to solve global problems.
Knowledge institutions attract experts in computer science, human rights, political science, the arts and the experimental humanities. The center’s mission is to “understand unmanned and autonomous vehicles”. They look at history, law, politics, psychology and a number of other fields to answer interesting and difficult questions and to predict what will happen with drones in the near future.
Academic and practical research in drone technology is bridging gaps across disciplines and creating discourse on the future of this revolutionizing technology. The changes that unmanned aerial vehicles can bring about are currently in development at academic institutions across the globe.
