Re: drones
@mhhf1ve I agree with you, although here's betting there will be marketing geared towards the IoT of cars and drones in the future. I think it's going to be worth it for sales and marketing guys to try to lump these all in with one another.

Re: drones
@mhhf1ve Is your position that anything that can be connected should be? Do you also like smart forks  that are intended to drive healthier eating habits?

Re: drones
The IoT is going to encompass a lot of devices that we might not expect. We could exclude smartphones or autonomous cars or drones or home automation sensors/things, but I think it might be better for the development of IoT to include more "things" rather than fewer.

Re: drones
@mhhf1ve I had not previously thought of IoT as the purview of drones. 

Now, I might be wrong. It is true there are going to be places where regular sensors are not going to be practical. The question is: How do you define drones as an IoT technology? It seems to operate in a vastly different space.

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?

Re: drones
Not to mention mountain rescue missions and dropping care packages in wartorn areas - so many possibilities!
