IoT App Store Supplies Free Developer Tools

Any Internet of Things (IoT) devfice can get into the free online IoT App Store just by using the free Ubuntu Core stripped down to fit into not just drones and wearables, but any industrial, commercial or consumer electronics device. I say this because the copy-editor's headline makes it sound like its only for drones and wearables, but those are just the first two applications in the IoT App Store. Soon there will be IoT devices in every category in the IoT App Store. Developers take note that you don't have to buy the device in the store to create a cool app for it, Ubuntu supplies an on-line simulator in the cloud that lets you validate your app without ever touching the hardware. What have you got to loose? They also supply the cloud-based development tools. In fact, I think I will start developing some apps. I can think of some cool ones right off the bat for drones, and by Sept. 2015 nearly any drone app will be legalized by the FAA.

Yes, it will just be matter of months or a year at most, until drones are legalized worldwide. Next will be whether its legal to destroy a drone that's peaking in your window :)

Okay, thanks for the information! Good to know that legalization of commercial drones is going to be done by September 2015. That might also indicate that DGCA in India would have some regulation globally harmonized by similar time frame or by an year.

U.S. Civilian/Commercial Use of Drones Now

The FAA gives special approval to fly drones on U.S. soil for some purposes--such as border patrol and real estate surveying--but there is no law against recreational flying of drones that weigh less than 55 pounds. In addition, Congress has passed legislation requiring the FAA to legalize commercial drone use by September 2015.

In China, as I know, there is no regulation on Drone at present. Therefor, many companies develop drones, and do the test without any limitation from government.

The DGCA (Director General Civil Aviation) in India issued a notice dated 7th Oct 2014 which stated about the civilian use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) or Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) that:

"...The civil operation of UAS will require approval from the Air Navigation Service provider, defence, Ministry of Home Affairs, and other concerned security agencies, besides the DGCA...."

But...

"...DGCA is in the process of formulating the regulations (and globally harmonize those) for certification & operation for use of UAS in the Indian Civil Airspace. Till such regulations are issued, no non government agency, organization, or an individual will launch a UAS in Indian Civil Airspace for any purpose whatsoever..."

What about US, China, other countries...it is legal to fly drones?
