Stories involving drones have been a mix of science fiction, military strategy and future commerce. Think of the 1960’s cartoon, The Jetsons.
The technical name for a drone is Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). A UAV can be either remotely piloted or it can be an autonomous vehicle. The history of drones dates as far back as 1849. Austrians equipped balloons with bombs that had timing devices on their fuses. The intended target was Venice. The wind was not correctly accounted for, however. As many bombs blew back across Austrian lines as there were exploded over Venice.
