An Introduction to UAV Regulations
There has been an exponential surge in the use of the small unmanned aerial vehicles (sUAV), also known as drones, ranging from recreational to professional and research activities. However, whether used as a great toy to record spectacular images from the air or a great tool for activities such as mapping, construction or emergency response, the sUAV can crash or collide with other objects, or can cause privacy concerns. This is why most countries regulate the operation of sUAS to mitigate the risks from potential inflight accidents with manned aircrafts that operate in the same airspace, collisions with vehicles and power lines, crashes in populated areas, or privacy violations that can raise trespassing and security concerns. The presentation will address various regulations and operational aspects we need to be aware of for the safe and legal operation of a sUAV.
