By Alex J Brown, Alexander G Korza, Jamie Donahue, Lumbini Neha Parnas and Nicholas Matthew Borowski


This project explores the relationship between technological growth and the impact of drones. We did this by analyzing the inter-dependencies of drone capability, public opinion, and regulation as they guide the growth of the drone industry in wide variety of applications. Technological growth increases the usefulness of drones in all applications. Public opinion and regulation prevent drones from being realized at their full potential, for fear of misuse.
