Re: drones
They could absolutely be useful for many such areas getting information about disaster sights, traffic issues, and aerial missing person searches. I think the technology will evolve and there will be less fear eventually but for now we are still limited.

Re: drones
@mayam:

That is most likely possible.

However I heard in news lately. There are plans for police dept to use drones to capture pictures / videos in accident scenes. They foresee huge cost savings taking this route as they use helicopters for that purpose right now and the whole things is an expensive ordeal as it was reported. Using Drones for this situation seems very wise and convincing. There has to be right justification.

Re: drones
The restrictions are most likely causing a reduction of usage amd purchasing.

Me neither. However I hear and see a bit of slow down with drones lately. Not sure if it is just me.

Re: drones
True, I just read an article in the news about the reduced cost of drones making them more of a security risk. I don't know that I will ever feel safe with a drone buzzing over my house but time will tell.

They may get safer, but how safe is the question. Security concerns will remain for very long though.

Drones should get safer eventually but I think they will always present a security concern.

Re: drones
@maryam, @freehe:

I will join you two ladies with similar feelings about my reservations about drones.

On the other hand i keep hearing plans at diffreent levels on making use of drones for good reasons. Recently herad on news about using drones to take areal pictures of accident scenes on roads which would result in big chunk of costing for police department as they normally use a police helicopter which would cost dearly. I felt that is really a good way to pratically use drones.

Re: drones
There are many people who feel the same way even if I were assured that the drone was performing a needed task I would still be concerned about malfunctioning drones causing injury to property and people..

Re: drones
@mhhf1ve , I disagree, I think doing so will cause a lot of confusion. Many are stil confused and not sure exactly what IOT is. I think there should be a clear distinction of what IOT is and what it is not. I would rather them say that IOT can be used with X devices such as smartphones, computers, sensors etc. versus saying and IOT device.
