I am having some interesting discussions with my editors in our virtual newsroom.
I think this is a big deal. But others say that if they can't justify the ROI in investing in WSTS, they are making the right business decision.
Now, that's where I start to worry.
Business people often like to say "do the right thing." But the reality is that they like to talk about their occasional "doing the right thing" moments, because it happens so rarely.
In most cases, business/financial reasons trump everything. Forget about doing anything for the greater good.
Do we need WSTS?
Do we need SIA?
Let us know what you think.
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 Ė as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
