Today’s robopromo is Amir Rahmani on, “Micro Aerial Vehicles: Opportunity or Liability”. It begins:
Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) pose a number of legal and regulatory issues when operating in national airspace. As a result, Congress tasked the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) with safely integrating UASs into our national airspace by 2014. However, Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs), which are small to medium-sized UASs, present additional concerns because they do not qualify for the 2014 FAA integration.
I think this sounds bad for the taco copter?
The big news today is that the papers have started coming in, and as they are received I’m linking to them not only from the relevant robopromos but also from the We Robot Program page. I hope to have them all Real Soon Now.
Today’s robopromo: Sinziana Gutiu on “Sex Robots and Roboticization of Consent”. And yes, there’s a paper linked to from there.
