Drones entered the commercial space as exciting, recreational albeit expensive toys, slowly transforming into a multi-billion-dollar industry with myriad commercial applications ranging from asset inspections to military surveillance. AI can replace humans at various levels of commercial drone use - they can autonomously control the drone flight, analyze sensor data in real time or even examine the data post-flight to generate insights. At any of these levels, it is often required to identify and locate objects-of-interest around the drone through the data captured by its sensors, making Object Detection fundamentally important to impart intelligence to a drone.
