Skywaves and airwaves: the case for risk mitigation with drones

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles are rapidly emerging as a promising mode of transportation for goods and passengers. Their versatile capabilities and increased accessibility, coupled with more affordable equipment, are propelling UAVs towards early commercial integration. The mobile industry plays a significant role in this evolution, especially with the expansion of 5G coverage, as evidenced by several high-profile test flights.

This analysis represents the second instalment in a two-part series exploring the evolving commercial models for UAVs, driven by advancements in mobile connectivity and technologies. The initial instalment delved into their crucial role in emergency-response support. This Spotlight now shifts its focus to utilising UAVs for people density mapping across various scenarios, including flight control, urban planning, and the development of smart traffic systems.
