Drone autonomy or drone automation?
Drone autonomy is the hottest trend nowadays. But sometimes the term itself seems confusing - are we talking about automated operations performed by drones? If so, what is the difference between automated and autonomous drones?

AUTOMATED DRONES can execute orders automatically, i.e. without human involvement. It means they can fly, pick up things, spray, take photos and videos - do everything you expect drones to do.

AUTONOMOUS DRONES can make decisions. Such drones decide on destination and route as well as control in the air. Freedom from external control or influence, 100% independence.
