@max: What do you think Mrs Crusty would make of all this?
Can you remember Mrs Glum from the radio programme "Take It from here"? It may be before you were a twinkle in your mothers eye? However Mrs Glum was always a noises off and Mr Glum (Jimmy Edwards) interpreted these noise as Mrs Glum disagreeing with his decision or plan. I think the Mrs Crusty we allude to here, would have the same opinion as Mrs Glum, perhaps not very dissimilar to your Mums view on this subject which might be "Silly men"? :-)LOL
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.
