In recent days, smart farming will reach every corner of the globe to expand the quality and quantity of production. Subsequently, the standard deployment of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) for smart farming is enormous and move towards fourth industrial revolution. In addition, drones outfitted with proper cameras, sensors and integrating elements that aid to attain transparent, efficient and precision agriculture. The agriculture sector is using the Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing more frequently, which has boosted crop output through cost control, performance monitoring, and maintenance. Because of the efficient use of resources and increased crop yield, this has immensely helped farmers. In order to further sustainable smart agriculture, the proposed research aims to create a smart drone for crop management that makes use of real-time data along with IoT and cloud computing technologies. Integrating these drone solutions with other cloud and IoT technologies can improve their potential for future development. The importance of IoT in agriculture and the real-world uses that can be made are also emphasized in this piece.
