Description In this chapter, I discuss actual attempts to create an aerial system based on drones that is meant as a substitution for some functions of current infrastructure, which will lead to a decrease in the congestion of the infrastructure and to an increase in the quality of life among people living in cities using drones. I analyze advantages as well as disadvantages of this solution. Then I argue that attempts to create a drone-based aerial system throughout cities are premature and far more inefficient than normally presented. According to that, I propose an alternative solution which is based on the so-called internet of things. This would help to preserve current infrastructure and, at the same time, to reach higher effectivity and consequently a better life of people in such cities, all of it without the need to create a system of flying machines above our heads.
