The launch tomorrow of the Ingenuity drone by the Mars rover Perseverance is one more reminder that we are now living in the drone age. They have already come to redefine some sectors and — as artificial intelligence AI merges with drone technology — drones will re-shape other sectors, raising important policy issues. Nowhere is this more the case than with drones in the military and in aerial photography, two sectors in which the use of drones raises important policy issues.

You will also need to consider that many property management services now use drones in their line of work. Drones are now also seeing more and more use in property inspections, real estate, landscaping, and surveying applications, as well.
