Abstract: Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or Drones has been developing brilliantly in the last few decades and they show a remarkable progress in application where human reach is either difficult or hazardous especially in the grimy, dull, and risky activities with advance technology. The technology advancement is making the UAV much better in its specification with advances in computing innovation, programming improvement, light-weight materials, worldwide route, propelled information joins, refined sensors and so on, are reinforcing the abilities and fueling the interest for UAVs worldwide. UAV also colloquially known as Drone is a robot that has the ability to operate autonomously without direct control from a human operator. For nations, it is a surveillance tool, meant to watch over nations as Drones have been used in the past for warfare as such, and activities alike. Drones have been a handy gadget to get “Ariel photography” for many decades and used for intelligence and anti-terrorist outcomes. Today the drones are much more versatile and are moving the industry ahead in its reach for activities as monitoring, investigation, product deliveries, aerial photography, healthcare, disaster relief management, agriculture and even drone racing. There are other types of drones too such as boats, submarines, and ground-based robots. The primary purpose is to explore the usage of drones in Humanitarian causes such as disaster relief and social causes as health care.
