How to use drone in a sentence?

  1. Giovanni Staunovo:

    The oil market seems to be pricing in again a geopolitical risk premium following the weekend drone attacks on Saudi Arabia, but the premium might not sustain if it does not result in any supply disruptions.

  2. Saudi Arabia:

    The drone attacks on Saudi oil pumping stations carried out by groups supported by Iran not only threaten the security of the kingdom and the Gulf, but also threaten maritime safety and global oil supplies.

  3. Arnau Garcia:

    Right now natural parks have two big problems, the first one of them is to detect rhinos and non-authorized people in the area. That has been done with helicopters and planes up until now, but that is very expensive. In addition, you cannot see people who hide under trees from a plane. We solve this with thermal cameras. We use a drone that carries that kind of camera and looks over that area or those places suspected of having this kind of problem and it detects hot points. Like we see here. This shows people. Every pixel has a different color depending on how hot it is. This is placed on the drone, that takes a picture and reports directly to the ranger.

  4. Tom Fuentes:

    What if the drone gets beyond the distance of the radio control? We had that drone land on the front lawn of the White House.

  5. Richard Singer:

    I would be very surprised if we get to the point where hotels are entirely manned by robots, but who would've thought a few years ago that there would be driverless cars or drone planes.
