Abstract

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or dones as they are more commonly known, are aircrafts without a human pilot aboard. The vast majority of this type of vehicle are operated by a remote controller through a wireless radio frequency that informs the on board control circuits to distribute power between motors in specific ways. A small subsection of these drones that are available to the general population are capable of autonomous travel with the user defining desired coordinates and the vehicle determining how to move itself from one location to the next This paper looks to define several criteria of these machines in order to determine the cost to functionality profile of modern day civilian drones and to predict the likely trend of how civilian drones will most likely develop in the future.

Keywords: drones; umnanned drone; autonomic devices; artificial intelligence.
