I don't know that anyone does it this way, but you could envision a manufacturing system where they test the scopes on the line and, in essence, bin them for BW. So the best performing units get the high BW model numbers and so on. So, I don't think its completely unrealistic to think that their could be some issues with hacking in a BW upgrade.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
