Abstract:
    Photography is a major area of drones usage. Currently, drones are remotely piloted. They need proper piloting and orientation. We aim to remove this skill barrier so everyone can do drone photography
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Drone industry has an estimated value of $3.3 billion and is expected to grow to $13 billion by 2020. The major industry using drones is photography(47%). Everyone can't use drones because of the skill, cost & risk. We aim to to make photography with drones really simple and help more people use it.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Our solution is for the general public, hobbyists and photographers. Literally anyone can use it from a student, amateur to a professional. The possibilities are endless.
How will the solution works
    We provide a really simple android application to link with the drone. It extracts the user's location using GPS. It asks user to select a template for the photo. It then calculates where it needs to be positioned and the orientation required for the picture to be taken according to the template. The drone then flies to the location and orients itself. It takes a picture and shows it to the user for confirmation.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Currently, we have no competitors. There is no drone photography solution that offers this level of autonomy. Almost all the drones require the user to manually control the drone. A simpler or similar solution does not exist yet.
