Drones monitor railroad workers, surveillance concerns arise

Drones have been in existence for years, but only more recently has their use become so widespread and varied. As commercial drone use grows, we will see more unique ways of employing drones, which right now we perhaps can't even imagine.

How much harm can a drone do to a person on impact?

In April of 2018, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued a new report on human collisions with drones. Although the FAA admits the figures on drone crashes with humans may be too early to fully predict, they did find data on how much damage a drone may cause when colliding with someone on the ground.

Drone registration required by FAA

An ongoing argument exists between drone hobbyists and commercial companies that use drones in their businesses. The businesses argue that hobbyists should have to abide by rules just as the commercial companies must. Rules create fairness and safety for those operating unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) in the skies.
