Drones have features including creditable accessibility, flexibility in applications, fast response and low latency, and easily deployable to achieve difficult missions. Better yet, with the immense improvement in Internet technologies over time, multiple drones can be connected and form an Internet of Things (IoT) system. In this paper, we propose an IoT system based on multiple drones which are connected with each other, therefore automatically monitor and take responsibility in various scenarios. Public safety is an important application of drones, in which drones can be equipped with HD cameras, face recognition system and non-lethal weapons, thereby monitor and react to emergencies. Searching and rescuing have long been a time-consuming and laborious job, but with the help of searching drones that are equipped with GPS location modules and thermal sensors, it’s possible to effectively conduct search and rescue missions without regard to light and obstacles. Limited coverage of cellular and wi-fi signals restrict people’s work at times. This is no more a problem with the help of drone base stations, which can be deployed separately, therefore, extend the signal coverage. By analyzing these three scenarios and related technologies, we show that the performance of the proposed drone-based IoT system is helpful.
