ABSTRACT
Initial drone research was mostly concerned with improving technical abilities--including battery power and flight accuracy. More recent research investigates how drones can support existing application domains and even create new ones. This special issue looks at some of this more recent research. Instead of looking at the larger drones mostly used during military operations, it focuses on smaller drones, which fly at lower altitudes and thus could play a more significant role in pervasive computing applications.
