 “We’ve always said that it doesn’t make sense to have a 2-tonne machine delivering a 2kg order.”

This statement by Don Meij (Domino’s Pizza Enterprises CEO) may have sounded too far off in future a few years back but not anymore as Drone Tech. has matured immensely to be able to serve several day-to-day use cases.

Some brilliant perspectives shared by Jaspreet Bindra in his LiveMint article on the evolution of Drone Tech. Catch the summary in my sketchnote, key points that i liked:

1. Beyond military and last mile delivery use cases, Drones, however, are best used in agriculture, aerial photography, rescue missions and insurance. 
2. Drones will soon become a hardware commodity, much like personal computers.
3. Newer business models like “drones-as-a-service" will emerge.

However, one of the limiting factor is that regulation is miles behind the progress the Drone technology has made. It is a gap that is essential to fill to leverage its full potential. As Jaspreet concludes
"Like everything else in technology, it will be us humans who will decide whether we use drones for beneficial or malevolent ends. "
