The world’s largest drone maker, DJI Technologies, announced Wednesday it will begin including airplane and helicopter detectors in nearly all consumer drones manufactured in and after 2020, making it the first company to do so.
Brendan Schulman, vice president of policy and legal affairs for DJI, told 100 industry experts in Washington the company will install technology into all drones over 250 grams that can receive ADS-B signals from the much larger aircrafts. “DJI was the first company to offer geofencing, automatic altitude limits, return-to-home technology and other safety features to the world’s growing community of personal and professional drone pilots. We believe our efforts have helped drones attain their enviable safety record, and we expect our new agenda will further improve safety even as more drones take to the skies,” Schulman said in a prepared statement. via @washingtonexaminer #drone #dji #adsb
