@embeddedbarr: Curious from a legal perspective: if you were retained to review some code from firm "X" (e.g., GM, BMW, VW, Boston Scientific, Bayer...) - would that effectively make you ineligible as a witness on the plaintiff side in a lawsuit against said firm? I could imagine many firms retaining Barr Group for a "nibble" of work, simply as a defensive tactic to one day facing you on the other side of the table. Thoughts?

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.
