Safety and security matters. Some recommendations for the industry
Safety and security are always an issue when it comes up to drone topics. Here we would like to give some recommendations to Manufactures, the Creative Industries and drone operators in general. Please check also our recently published, freely available, book on Springer or download Policy book.
Manufacturers: safety and security by default in designing drones is the best way to give trust to the market and other stakeholders.
Creative industries: even if it is not compulsory a license to fly indoors, it would give value to your professional work. Moreover, having an insurance is a key point in any case when flying indoors to prevent people or property damage.
Privacy: always inform people that images are going to be recorded. Asking for permission is not only a legal requirement but many times an ethical one. You can do it explicitly, asking for signing an authorization, or implicitly, showing advises on the walls or doors of the indoor space. Take in mind that you have to comply with European Data Protection Rules.
