Drones and other aerial vehicles are commonly used in Search and Rescue (SAR) Operations to locate, stabilise, and extract distressed individuals. A drone is essentially a flying robot that can be remotely controlled or fly autonomously via software-controlled flight plans in their embedded systems, in conjunction with onboard sensors and a global positioning system (GPS). There are a variety of applications for drones today, and their use is expanding globally. It is a safe bet that the use of drones will continue to increase as technology continues to develop. Constantly raised by drone players is the issue of limited flight time due to poor battery life. Consequently, the purpose of this paper is to investigate the most recent research on the energy performance evaluation of battery-powered drones for search and rescue (SAR) operations.
