Bots and drones were big conversation topics in 2016. At CES Las Vegas in early 2017, companies showed that they are taking notice of their consumers desire to see what these new technology can do. On one hand, bots can help automate day-to-day tasks and target the right demographic. Drones are more than just hobbies, but can be trusted with deliveries, as Amazon hopes to do in the future.
What we see are two possible large players for the future, but what can they do to help your business?
Bots and Drones Are Not New
The words themselves are not necessarily new, but we have created a new definition for the words in today’s nomenclature. Bot is a very technical term that sprang from old science fiction movies along with droids and such. Drone, probably associated with the sound bees of the same name makes The meanings of these words today still stay a bit true to their old meanings. Drones do emit a soft hum when they are flown and bots refer to the fact that like those old sci-fi movies, can be commanded to do a specific job. So since they have been around, there should be nothing to fear.
How Businesses Will Change
For drones specifically, we already see the change happening. The FAA has issued temporary licenses to test run how the machines will work. Those that approve of using drones say that it provides that missing middle ground that companies cannot currently provide. Drones are better at mapping and scanning objects in three-dimensional space. This means more accurate data that can improve the lives of customers.
Bots are already being used to scrape data from the web, among other things. It is just a matter of time before the big changes that we are told to expect will come to pass.
For your business now, it is important to keep track of these changes so that you can be ready once these things are fully operational. It starts with a website, a landing page, a marketing place that is able to cope with the changing landscape of business and technology. Tractus Online can help.
