Nuclear energy generation is a capital intensive activity and it also requires a lot of safety related measures to be taken. Nuclear energy stations cannot be located in the heart of cities or on desnsely populated areas because of the possible radiation hazard.
I think Germany has taken a very wise decision to do away with Nuclear energy in light of the infamous Fukushima incident in Japan.
Alternate energy sources like wind energy, solar energy and bio-fuel are the best energy generation options in my opinion.
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.
