Over the last decade, security technology has undoubtedly come a long way. Even though humans are still competent enough to provide security to anything from a person to an organization, they still lack in many ways. Biased judgments, negligence, tiredness, need for sleep, and wage disputes lead human security capabilities flawed. These security vulnerabilities are now mitigated by the advent of unmanned security measures and devices like automated doors, robots, and drones.
Where guards need to be paid regularly for their services, drones provide security with a one-time installment of purchasing and configuration. Eventually, they offer a highly cost-effective and more reliable security measure. Self-driving cars improve the safety of passengers significantly. Drones help in finding vulnerabilities of an area that can be missed by humans by providing a 3D perspective. Securities now use drones to monitor roofs and high places. Drones have also been resourceful in emergency relief situations, like providing aid to hurricane-stricken areas and fires of California.
However, there are risks in relying on drones. They are still prone to cyber-attacks and have been reported to be used to send sensitive information to other countries. Due to system failure or frequency interference, one can lose control of drones. Their limited battery life also poses as one of the problems hindering their adaption on a global scale.
Despite the risks, the number of registered and certified drone operators has only increased. Debates are raging on about implementing Drone ID, which would be crucial in Unmanned Traffic Monitoring (UTM). GIS data integration with drone technology also opens up new pathways to innovations in unmanned security technology.
