The project goal was to design a semi-autonomous Quad copter capable of self-sustained flight via wireless communications. The Quad copter was designed to be small enough so that costs would be minimized. Drones can significantly accelerate delivery times and reduce the human cost associated with the delivery. This report examines the value chain and opportunities in the delivery drones market. It also discusses the barriers for adoption. It concludes with our case for drones to handle the last mile of delivery of most lightweight packages. The drone cameras are operated above 500 meters and covered a radius of three kilometers. The cameras were also operated in the lanes and by lanes of the town to check the movement of people. This project also used to detect obstructs and alerts form collision occurrence. It also used to detect the fire, temperature, humidity and sends an alert message to our mobile.
