Authors(4) :-Thamma Bhanu Sumanth Reddy, Pullagura Harsha Teja, Regalla Pavan Teja, Thandra Praneeth

An Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (often called a Drone) is an aircraft that is not operated by a pilot on board. Drones are rapidly growing market and increasingly leverage. The Applications of these flying robots are limitless. This paper reviews and discusses about embedded vision and sensor technology which culminates in several innovative applications over drones. It introduces an industry alliance available to help product creators incorporate robust vision capabilities into their drones designs.This paper mainly deals on Autonomous Delivery of light weighted items along with the collision avoidance technology and also tracks the whereabouts of the vehicle in a cost effective approach. This can also be used for carrying out complex assignments such as rescue operations during disasters, mines surveying.
