Monitor (Marine Ports)
Cities often need to continuously monitor particular areas and drones integrated with special sensors and cameras could be particularly useful in meeting these needs. Should they be used to search for missing people? Or map areas to assess flood risk? Perhaps to continuously monitor waste sites for fire risk? Several important uses of drones for monitoring could be found around ports, including testing water quality, monitoring shipping lanes, assessing air quality or policing waters. UAVs for monitoring could reduce the risk to people and the environment as well as delivering large improvements in the efficiency of services.
