Better regulation of civil drones

DSI researchers are co-authors of a recent report on the opportunities and challenges of civilian drones published by the TA-SWISS Foundation for Technology Assessment. The sharp increase in the use of civil drones raises numerous questions such as the integration of these unmanned aerial vehicles into an already heavily used airspace, questions of safety, compliance with the law and equality of rights, protection of privacy and the environment. 

The TA-SWISS study presents opportunities and risks of drone technology in a consolidated form, analyses the regulatory framework and shows the strategic development potential for Swiss research and industry, which is currently very strong in the field of modern drone technology.
The study is available for free in German as an e-book at:
