How Drones Benefit from Semiconductor Innovations

By Enterprise Technology Review | Friday, February 07, 2020

The increased investment in drone innovations will also impact semiconductor innovations leading to lighter devices with enhanced device performance.

FREMONT, CA: Unmanned autonomous vehicles (UAVs) are being regarded as the next big thing after the PC and smartphone revolution. According to 3DInCites, drone technologies and robotics are two of the fastest emerging end-use markets for sensor technology. The need for cutting-edge technology is increasing, combined with constant growth in the use of semiconductors with drone devices. There is a need to increase the capability as well as the effectiveness of drone devices with a growth in the number of drone use cases. Technologies such as semiconductors and sensors will play a key role in the above cause. Typically, operators are considering drones that can avoid obstacles as well as fly light. The above capabilities can be achieved with the incorporation of smart sensors and the latest semiconductors.

Depending on the potential of semiconductors, drones can actively contribute to the mobility of drone devices. For instance, the lighter the components are, the better they can qualify as an effective drone material, as it will streamline the flight of the device. Further, semiconductor incorporation can offset drones' size and weight, thereby enabling the manufacturers to install enhanced capabilities into the device system. The above capability can also address the modern issue of optimizing space on the drone while providing enough computational power to enable intelligent device functioning as well as allow processing images and information in real-time.

The innovations in semiconductors are aiding the drone manufacturers to optimize drones' capabilities and efficacy. Increasingly, companies are investing in drone devices that can fly to difficult terrains and offer key business value to the firms. Increased investment in drones will also result in an indirect investment into semiconductors, causing an improvement in semiconductor technology. Modern advancements will allow drones to sense more things, navigate smartly, and make better decisions.

Innovations in semiconductor technology will largely impact the drone technology with enhanced device efficiency and precision.
