Congrats. I hope to see EE Times have an Africa version. I truly mean it. A partnership with a tech blog focused on EE could help. I recommend tekedia.com which is #1 in Africa on electronics and tech coverage.
Thank you for your really kind words. We couldn't have pulled this off without a passionate production team (we do have the best copy chief and the best art director), an editorial team who really cared about the subject matter (literally every single EE Times editor contributed to this issue, and each went for extra miles to get the story), and a vision our CEO had in suggesting a special issue.
And of course, we thank our readers who took their time to read the issue!
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.
