Drones and Smart Cities: Transforming the Lives of Citizens

January 18, 2018 1:30 PM

130pm CT / 230pm ET
As cities become denser and more urban, they are relying on technology to help them accommodate the influx of new residents and improve quality of life for their citizens. Cities have become some of the most vibrant and progressive places for technological development. The influx of this technology helps develop smart cities. Smart city technology often starts with the need to deliver services more rapidly and more efficiently to residents. One of those key technologies is drones. Today, thousands of drones are already being used to improve city life: drones are being used to document accident scenes, support first responder activities, and monitor construction sites. Soon drones will be a key component of package delivery. In the future, connected drones will navigate autonomously through cities.
