DRONES, THOSE FLYING CONNECTED ROBOTS: INITIATIVES, APPLICATIONS AND OPPORTUNITIES.
The Smart Drone sector is with us. Forecasts expect that the global market will reach over 8,000 million euros over the next three years with an annual growth rate at above 20%. Catalonia is home to innovative companies in this sector, as well as technology centres, universities and other agents working to further this industry. The Catalonia Smart Drone, an embryonic public initiative which aims to be the cluster of this new Catalan industry, is also empowering the sector of Smart services and solutions with drones in Catalonia.
