In ForestTECH, Issue11 by FIEA

In my last post, Five Biggest Commercial Drone Trends of 2017 and the Challenges Ahead, I used data from our 2017 Drone Market Sector Report to illustrate the major trends of the past year and describe the major challenges ahead for the drone industry. That post looked back, but this one looks forward, offering our specific predictions for 2018, including investments, technology improvements, ecosystem partnerships, and software innovations. Trends include;

– Investment and testing will continue in earnest on Unmanned Traffic Management and beyond visual line of sight operations
– You’ll see more news on improved sensors, hardware integration, networking, and processing
– Look for more partnerships, software, and innovations coming from the DJI Enterprise ecosystem
– Software will dominate advancements
