'I recently sat down with Robert Garbett (Founder and CEO of Drone Major Group - 'the global commercial trade organisation for the drone industry' and got some answers about where drones are doing in the next ten years and how businesses can take advantage of the technology now and later on. Overall, Garbett was clear that there is 'no one-size fits all' solution or framework when it comes to implementing drone tech. Businesses should focus evaluation on; "...their current technological position; the purpose for adoption; the environment of operation; it's associated risk and the mindset within the business which is often the deciding factor between adoption and stagnation".'
Garbett believes businesses are missing a lot when it comes to the potential for drone technology; "...the possibilities and benefits always go far beyond what is generally understood or expected. [Drone technology] represents a paradigm shift in capability, enabling organisations to significantly reduce costs and increase safety and efficiency." Most businesses are unaware that drones exist for underwater for example - for some that won't be relevant but for others, it will mean the differences between being in business and being out of business.
