The idea of package delivery to people living in remote locations or transporting people with drones seemed impossible a few years ago. Many were thinking about the repercussions that could go far beyond transportation. But the new era of drone has arrived. The impact that it will have on society is only limited by our imagination. In this Aerodyne Special Session, Panelists will shed light on the true meaning of Drone Economy. They will also share their thoughts on the biggest enabler for Drone Economy to take-off and how it can give immense benefit to the society.
