The origin of drones may be mired in war, killings and blood, but it has become one of the key technologies of the 21st century. Also known as UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) and sometimes “flying cameras”, they are being used in many innovative ways from walking dogs to search and rescue operations.

While Malaysia is not on the ­forefront of drone technology, many organisations are already employing it to do tasks that would take a human many hours, while others are in the process of doing so.
