Robolution Capital releases its Research Paper #1

Paris - July 2014
When talking about drones, or UAVs (unmanned aircrafts vehicles), one often thinks about military drones. But drastic cost reductions of components have recently allowed civilian drones to gain a lot of traction. And beyond some marketing operations, like Amazon’s announcement of allegedly soon-to-happen drone delivery, the UAV market is currently booming. The application fields are numerous, from video/photo to agriculture, inspection, search and rescue or security. This study written by Robolution Capital gives an overview of what is currently happening in the drone market.
