The new drones that will be developed in the next few years will improve our lives and make them safer, says Panos Artemiadis, director of the Human-Oriented Robotics and Control (HORC) Lab at the Arizona State University.
The Greek scientist predicts that in the very near future technology will link the human brain to computers and revolutionize our lives.
According to Artemiadis, we can control the memory of unmanned autonomous vehicles (UAVs) and simultaneously do things that would be impossible to do with a simple drone.
The researcher says the new drones could be used in search and rescue missions, while they could identify necessary irrigation adjustments and scan crops to identify infections or infestations.
Moreover, specially designed drones could also be used by fire departments for firefighting. In our daily lives, Artemiadis suggests that the new drone technology could increase security, as the user will be able to cover a larger range of visual surveillance.
The new drones are expected to be released for use over the next three to five years.
