Drones for damage assessment

State Farm seeks FAA permission to test drones for doing damage assessment during natural disasters, apparently following USAA doing the same.

Back when I did my CERT class, they talked about how after a major disaster, emergency response services would largely be tied up for quite a while doing damage assessment and triage determinations, and I thought about autonomous aerial photography, it's interesting to see that the insurance companies are headed that way.

I think it's one of the best possible uses for drones.
