The Institute of Information Technologies of ANAS hosted an online scientific seminar on "Drone technology: prospects and areas of application" of the 4th department.
Ogtay Alakbarov, an employee of the department, who presented the report, gave detailed information about the history, types, characteristics and applications of drones. He said that for the first time, drones were used by US law enforcement agencies to ensure security. In some cities in the US states of Texas, Nevada and Dakota, drones patrol 24 hours a day. These drones are equipped with a special base. Thus, information about wanted criminals is placed in the bases of drones. Identification of individuals' faces is carried out through special sensors and cameras.

Developed countries such as the United States, China, Germany, Australia and Japan are currently using drones to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
At the end, discussions were held around the report, and suggestions were made to deepen scientific research on drones.
