Although only five months young, dronologista blog has grown and needs a new attire.
As of 1st of September, dronologista.com moves to a new hosting, new address and slightly changes the appearance . Content will remain the same, and dronologista will continue to provide information about non-military drones only.
When Jeff Bazos announced that Amazon.com plans to introduce drones as a parcel delivery method, internet exploded with reactions, and the drone become latest technological gadget/device/tool that is bound to transform our society.
Let’s stop here for a second, and define what is ‘The Drone’ (all of you that are familiar with this ‘general description’, continue reading on your own responsibility). Drone, apart from being stingless male bee whose sole purpose is to mate with the queen bee, is a vehicle with certain level of movement and actions autonomy. The level of autonomy can vary from total control by human operator to full autonomy. That said, the drone could be used in situations where direct human involvement is either impossible, uneconomical or outright dangerous.
Unfortunatelly, image of drones at present is mostly connected to scenes similar to this, from the ‘Four Lions’ movie:
However, as any technology that originated from military R&D, this has also found it’s civilian application. And this is the reason for Dronelologista existence: to promote non military application of drones.
Dronologista envisions the society that accepted drones the same way it accepted mobile phones, internet, television, automobiles or any other yesterdays technological novelty that became integral part of everyday life.
Dronologista wants to provide information in Unmanned Autonomous Systems domain, and connect people and organizations that are developing, producing or using such systems for private, commercial, artistic or any other non military purpose.
I hope this short introduction will encourage you to come here often, and I will try to constantly provide fresh and interesting articles, to make you do so.
