No Drone Zone sign. Photographed at Monument Valley, USA, these signs are now a common feature at major tourist attractions. A drone, in technological terms, is an unmanned aircraft or UAV, unmanned aerial vehicle. Essentially, a drone is a flying robot that can be remotely controlled or fly autonomously through software-controlled flight plans in their embedded systems, working in conjunction with onboard sensors and GPS. While they originated mostly in military applications, their use is rapidly expanding to commercial, scientific, recreational, agricultural, and other applications, such as policing, peacekeeping, and surveillance, product deliveries, aerial photography, agriculture and smuggling.
