UAVs: Not just for last-mile anymore
Small drones designed to deliver small, high-value commodities, such as pharmaceuticals to remote hospitals, have been around for years, and all of them are hampered by the same restrictions from most world regulatory agencies that ban their use beyond line-of-sight piloting and above a few hundred feet, out of concern for public safety. It’s a major issue, and it may not be solved for some time.
