Re: drones
I would worry that those in war torn area might be so on edge even good drones would be seen as suspicious and harmful.

There are a few companies already developing drones for healthcare services in rural locations.. like Zipline.

Re: drones
Well I think there are use cases. The problem is boiling this technology down to its essence. No one is doing this, using the term "Internet of Things" which can be perplexing to the unfamiliar. 

Why not just say this is internet-connected sensor technology? I think that combined with data analytics, might make more sense to industrial decision-makers. Don't you think?

Re: drones
I wouldn't of thought so, drones are likely to be a cost effective option compared to most of the alternatives. Then again, I suppose any drones spotted in wartorn areas would be prime targets for getting shot down, for obvious reasons!

Re: drones
Interesting option but don't you think that the cost of drones and the potential loss would make them a risk in areas where they might be lost like areas under siege?

Drones in the desert, that's one practical application I haven't thought about before. It does make sense. If they operate equally well under extreme cold, I suppose they could also be used to monitor conditions in arctic climates.
