Drones and the human factor | ETH Zurich
The value we place historically and culturally on human life and property influences our perceptions of drones and ultimately our regulatory statutes governing their use. Paradoxically, it was not the hostility of mankind, but the hostile environment on Mars that inspired one regelungstechnil the projects presented at the conference.
Drones, equipped with high-resolution cameras used for facial recognition in public spaces and microphones used to eavesdrop on private conversations represent a perceived violation of our human rights.
Haaher International Events Robotics. Fields marked with a star are mandatory. Please use our form to send your comment to us:. Ecologists and conservationists perceive drone technology as an invaluable tool. While both carry out a similar mission, most government officials would be more inclined to shoot down an unmanned drone than they would a manned surveillance aircraft, the response to the latter being perceived as an act of war.
Drone conference at ETH Zurich.
The Martian atmosphere requires a delicate balance between structural regelungstecnhik solar cells, batteries, and air frame and power aerodynamic conditions or lift force. These will hopefully allow for longer flight duration, collision avoidance, and new algorithms that improve simultaneous localization and mapping.
The drone that crashed onto rfgelungstechnik White House lawn was flown in a highly regulated and restricted airspace; however, standard aviation safety regulations that are designed to protect people, property, and other aircraft from collision may not be enough for drones.
Martian Inspiration Paradoxically, it was not rrgelungstechnik hostility of mankind, but the hostile environment on Mars that inspired one of the projects presented at the conference. Kristin Bergtora Sandvik of the Peace Research Institute Oslo focused on the use of drones as surveillance tools in humanitarian conflicts.
When it comes to drones, we are facing a lawless state — a proverbial “wild west” where technology seems to out-pace regulation.
We are interested in your comments. Gimmick or first step to military application?
The fundamental question is whether or not we choose to employ drone technology for the benefit or the detriment of mankind. Leave a comment We are interested in your comments. Scientists of the Institute for Dynamic Systems and Control developed quadrocopters that can play tennis or be controlled by gestures. It is also doubtful that such regulations will protect privacy. Please use our form to send your comment to us: While there are still more questions than answers, one thing is clear: While Atlantik-Solar and other ETH Zurich drone technology is intended to benefit mankind, “What happens when such technology finds its way into the hands of the general public or unscrupulous consumers?
Among the participants were thought leaders from Switzerland, France, Norway, Australia, and the USA, who shared opposing perspectives of the issues surrounding the widespread use of drones. Siegwart and his team of researchers develop fixed-wing solar airplanes and blimps for long duration flights.
Vilmer focused on the legal and ethical aspects of drones used in armed conflict. He uses similarly equipped drones to survey wildlife, to photograph, and listen in on animals in unreachable habitats. Last week’s accidental crash landing of a drone at the White House heightened the international debate on the regulation of commercial drones.
Homepage Navigation Content Sitemap Search. As engineers, humanitarians, ecologists, political scientists, business leaders, and even a former US Army Ranger shared their views on the application of drone technology, a common and connecting thread emerged — fear.
The event provided a forum for passionate discussions: We are not afraid of drones, but of the possibility that they may be used for sinister purposes. Thermal imaging and high-resolution cameras help conservationists to patrol vast amounts of land and combat poaching of protected species. A conference at ETH Zurich addressed the fact that drone technology comes with controversial applications. Drones, unmanned aerial vehicles, and flying robots are quickly becoming part of our everyday lives and how we choose to use and to regulate this new technology reflects our culture, values, and perceptions.
