At present, drones are more and more integrated into daily production and life, and the scope of application has been widely expanded, becoming high-tech equipment with full affinity. Industrial-grade drones have been used in many fields such as agriculture, plant protection, express transportation, disaster rescue, and mapping. By the beginning of the 21st century, with the emergence of new technologies such as global satellite positioning and cost reduction, civilian drones have begun to proliferate. As of the end of June 2019, the number of registered drones in China reached 339,000. Statistics show that China ’s consumer drone exports account for about 70% of the world ’s total drone exports, reaching more than 1.2 million. Behind the rapid development of the drone industry are the continuous advancement of technology and the continuous expansion of the market. It is increasingly recognized that drones can perform tasks that are not convenient for humans. For example, it takes 1-2 hours to manually inspect a base tower, while autonomous drones only need 5-10 minutes to discover hidden dangers that cannot be detected by the human eye, and has a wide range of application scenarios. In the next few years, drones will become a more common tool of labor. Industry insiders pointed out that DJI's success in the field of consumer drones has also promoted the development of the entire industry. In addition to aerial photography, the consumer-level intelligent drones they launch can also be applied in many fields such as forest patrols, line maintenance, traffic guidance, emergency rescue, and sports game penalty. Drones need to fly higher and more securely without effective supervision. In recent years, relevant departments and local governments have issued many policy documents on drones, which have successively made regulations in the areas of registration, airworthiness, airspace management, operation management, and flight license management to protect the development of the drone industry. In the wave of 5G and artificial intelligence technology, drones will usher in new opportunities. For example, it can realize the transmission of image data faster, and further expand the flying distance and control range of the drone. In terms of aerial photography of consumer drones, 5G technology will enhance the user experience, making the picture clearer, data transmission faster, and wider control range. In the future, the upgrading of technology, the expansion of consumer groups, and the expansion of application fields will bring broad development space for the drone industry. Experts said that drones not only realize people's "flying dreams" in a high-tech, low-cost way but also record our daily lives from an "overlook" perspective. This is an industry that expands the field of human cognition and activities, and it is also a technologically advanced industry. Establish industry standards, improve relevant laws, and cultivate a larger market. The drone industry will definitely provide more and better services for people's production and life.
