Drones are incredibly popular, everybody wants to have a drone these days. And I support you, they are fun to play with, you'll shoot great photographs and footage, go get one! But when you get a drone, you'll also need a variety of drone equipment in order to make your overall drone experience better
My innovation, HEROTECH8, brings drone technology to places and people that either wouldn't have the resources, energy infrastructure, or technical know-how to reliably, and safely, operate drone systems. This is not by focusing on the vehicles (although this is a very popular topic at the moment with start-ups) - instead we create autonomous drone infrastructure.
It's for this reason that the Dronecode was first developed. It's a set of rules laid out to ensure safe, responsible use of drones to maintain the UK's excellent air safety record. Over the last few months we've been conducting research into the first Code to see how well it has been adopted and recognised and on the back of this, we've created a new version to further ensure safety remains as important as fun.
