Technology makes us capable of things that were previously impossible, such as rapid travel by car or aircraft, or sending messages around the world in an instant. But often technology also changes the way we do those things we’re already capable of. The use of remotely controlled aerial drones has come to change the rules of the game from the difficult stage to the easy stage.Drones will need to likewise turn out to be extensively more solid to have the capacity to explore urban areas. At the point when most urban areas are portrayed by genuinely swarmed walkways, electrical cables structures, and natural life, there is no space for blunder. “A drone is a flying robot which was formally known as unmanned aerial vehicles or unmanned aircraft systems.” The unmanned aerial vehicles are either remotely or can fly autonomously through software controlled flight plans. Drones are equipped with different state of the art technology such as infra -red cameras, GPS and laser, which comes in a wide variety of sizes, with the large drone mostly used for military purposes such as the Predator drone, other smaller drones which can be launched by hand, to other unmanned aircraft vehicles which require short runways. An unmanned aerial vehicle system has two parts, the drone itself and the control system.The history of a drone technology started in the 1849 when the Austrians used balloons tobomb the city of Venice locatedin northeasternItaly. This was considered as the first drone or unmanned aerial vehicles.

This balloon was built with full explosives with the idea to release the explosives once the balloons past through the city of Venice, because at that time the build of city would not allow artillery to get close. Although they were able to hit their target, more the balloons were also blown off due to the heavy wind. However, with the invention of the airplane, the wind was no longer a factor in using unmanned aerial vehicles.Balloons would also become an important weapon in the First World War, being used forobservation and, in the form of barrage balloons, for anti-aircraft defense. In the years after the Great War, although sport ballooning declined, spectacular balloons would be built for daring flights into the stratosphere. In World War II, barrage balloons would again play a significant role, with both the British and the Japanese using balloons for offensive operations as well.
