Drones for risk assessment

Minimizing risk for police officers or fire rescue workers in uncertain or dangerous situations is critical in a smart city environment. Drone or unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) technology can pull together images to assess situations or possible dangers before sending in human beings.  Drones can also help find fires, identify and prevent police ambushes, quickly search accident and crime scenes, and even detect heat from threats that may be concealed. Hence, drones can act as first responders before human intervention can take place.
