The United States will allow small drones to fly over people at night. The news comes from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), which announced earlier this week that it is a step towards using drones for commercial purposes such as delivery.
According to Reuters, the FAA recently stated that it plans to implement its long-awaited drone rules, also known as unmanned aircraft.
These new regulations will in most cases address security issues by requiring remote identification technology.
This allows drones to be remotely identified from the ground. Currently, in the United States, small drone operations for personnel are very limited.
Drone users can only drive the drone on people directly involved in the action, or under a covered structure or in a fixed vehicle.
The only exception is based on receiving a waiver from the FAA. The new regulations will take effect 60 days after being published in the Federal Register in January 2021; after that, drone manufacturers will have approximately 18 months to start producing drones with built-in remote IDs. Operators and users of drones will have another year on this basis to provide remote IDs.
According to FAA Administrator Steve Dickson, “The new rules pave the way for further integration of drones into our airspace to address safety and security issues.”
He further added Said: “The new rules solve safety and security issues and pave the way for the further integration of drones into our airspace.” Up to now, drone companies have been racing to create a fleet of drones to accelerate The delivery process, especially in the United States.
