UAVs today have a plethora of uses in agriculture, energy, logistics, defense, homeland security, construction, surveillance, real estate, and Media creation. UAV systems technology's utilisation is only projected to grow as a result of its diverse variety of applications. UAVs are comprised of two components, that is, hardware and software. Uninterrupted operation is due primarily to installed software that safely guides the UAV on its path and provides information on where to go and when to react.

Cloud-based software is now accessible, allowing UAVs to broaden their range of uses. Users may control and manage drone operations with a single click using UAVs featuring cloud-based software. Pre-planned, repeated missions are despatched on demand or via the flight scheduling system. To extract insights and improve decision-making processes, users can engage in real-time and process data. Stockpile volumetric measurements, recognising and counting individuals or objects, and security applications such as detecting breaches and movement are a few examples of UAV software applications.
