Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)

An aircraft without any human pilot, crew or passengers on board. It could be piloted by an autonomous system (like a robot) or a ground-based human pilot. A common term for UAVs is “drone”, although not all drones are UAVs, because drones are not only aerial, they can be aquatic or ground “robots” too.
