Seems telling that there has not been a comment to this report. It's certainly good that EE Times recorded the agreement, but the agreement feels like Rambus doesn't get much more than face-saving closure with ST Micro.

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.
