Here come the drones. And their gray-suited operators. Who are fluent in Polish.
As the possibilities for commercial drones expands, it looks like regulation will be one of the key factors in allowing how fast new applications are rolled out (or not rolled out).
Consultants PwC are launching a new service this week to help clients in construction and real estate development survey land and buildings. They’re starting it out in Poland, because it’s one of only two countries (according to theFinancial Times), that have drafted a comprehensive set of regulations to deal with the implications of drone use–regulations that, crucially, allow them to be operated beyond the actual line of sight of the operator. The other country is South Africa, the FT says.
