When most people think of drones, the very first thing they typically visualize is a flying camera - an eye in the sky. Although consumer drone industry has done a great job in pushing cost effective camera drones in people's hands, commercial drone ecosystem needs many different kinds of sensors and actuators to realize the meaningful business impact. 


What role can software & platforms play in today's multi-sensory IoT ecosystem powered by heterogeneous drones capable of carrying a variety of payloads? How can businesses focus on domain specific outcomes than worrying about the basics of connectivity, security, data transport and regulatory compliance? What kind of infrastructural hardware and software artifacts can the commercial drone industry collectively provide to unleash the real digital disruption potential of drones?
