The huge spread in scores is interesting ... but not very informative until we have a better understanding of the benchmark. Is this score proportional to something that consumers experience or is it a measurement that is drowned out by the overlaid software? My first computer in 1979 ran at 1 MHz and my current one runs at 2 GHz. Is it 2,000 times faster? No, actually the user interface is much slower.
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.
