It’s hard to argue against drones being a transformative technology. Especially when you consider the major impact that drones have caused already. What types of industries are already feeling the impact? According to Samsung’s Insights blog:
Several industries are emerging as UAS leaders. These industries tend to be composed of operators who need to access rapidly changing operational data in order to support critical decisions and workflows. The fact that UAS have low operating costs, rapid deployment capability and low barriers to entry benefit these industries. All of these factors combine to form a powerful business tool.
According to Casey Meeks, Insights blog contributor, which 5 industries (sorted alphabetically) have already been changed for the better thanks to low-cost drone technology?
- Emergency Response and Law Enforcement
- Environmental Protection
- Oil and Gas
If you’d like to learn how each of these industries have been improved, then I recommend you read Casey’s complete article, “5 Industries That Will Be Changed by Unmanned Aircraft Systems.”
Samsung is a South Korean multinational conglomerate company headquartered in Samsung Town, Seoul. It comprises numerous subsidiaries and affiliated businesses, most of them united under the Samsung brand, and is the largest South Korean chaebol (business conglomerate).
Samsung was founded by Lee Byung-chul in 1938 as a trading company. Over the next three decades, the group diversified into areas including food processing, textiles, insurance, securities and retail. Samsung entered the electronics industry in the late 1960s and the construction and shipbuilding industries in the mid-1970s; these areas would drive its subsequent growth. Following Lee’s death in 1987, Samsung was separated into four business groups – Samsung Group, Shinsegae Group, CJ Group and Hansol Group. Since 1990s, Samsung has increasingly globalized its activities and electronics, particularly mobile phones and semiconductors, have become its most important source of income.
