In the last decade where we have witnessed several advancements in Drone Technology, cost and weight reduction and wider access to the components have caused drones to be easily found in various industrial and business applications. Small drones are currently used for Aerial Photography, Geographic Mapping and Surveying, Building Monitoring and Inspection, Patrolling, Precision Agriculture and Deliver Small Packages. Recently, there are substantial growing interest from investors and manufacturers in the development of Big Drone that can carry much bigger Cargo Payload than a typical small consumer drone. Industrial expert released a ten-year forecast that projected global drones spending would grow from $6.4 billion to $11.5 billion. It is also predicted that he global air freight cost will be reduced to 50% with large autonomous drones. This course is aimed at academicians, practicing engineers and to anyone who desires to know the drone application in industry.
