This program is awesome. Is there a website where we can see the progress and feedback generated by the participating organizations and their volunteers? In addition, can they make a scalable, localizable project that could be applied in various parts of the world, both for developed and developing countries? What are the goals of the project in addition to reducing CO2 by 2050? I'm excited to see a communications being involved to translate the technological benefits to folks not at R&D level.
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.
