Nowadays, when preparations and implementations are under way for smart cities, the use of drone systems in the safety of factories has come to the fore. Factories and industrial areas are complex systems. Physical control is essential for their optimal and safe operation. Most of the inspections can be performed with the use of human resources. However, efforts should be made to minimize the human factor in order to make the system as automated and optimized as possible. Pre-programmed routine tasks can be performed by drones, both indoors and outdoors. Dedicated drones are already in use around industrial facilities, primarily for facility protection. However, in enclosed halls, it is not easy to provide these tools with routine tasks, because indoor labor - material handling, reconnaissance, and accident-free transport - requires orientation. Besides the production lines and inside warehouse buildings, drones are already commonly used to perform smaller tasks, but the goal is to ensure the right ratio in the human-machine relationship. In their technical implementation, modern drones are assisted by various sensor systems (lidar, ultrasound, camera) that they are equipped with. This article presents the application of task-specific drones in industrial areas, both indoors and outdoors.
