As new drone regulations came into effect in Canada on June 1st, Professor Kristen Thomasen interviewed with CBC Windsor to comment on the social impact of drone technology--something that hasn't been taken into consideration with the new regulations.
"The technology can come down much lower. That means there's a social impact for people who encounter drones in public or semi-public spaces, like backyards," said Thomasen. "These rules make it more possible for drones to be flown in more spaces," said Thomasen. "For the drone industry that's great. The problem is that means we as individuals will be encountering drones more often."
