Unmanned Aircraft Project Leads To Civilian Drones

Thu Nov 15, 2012 1:18 pm

Interesting piece.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-20327991

"The "Pandora's box" of unmanned aircraft in the UK has been opened, according to the Astraea consortium.
The Astraea project will carry out real-world collision-avoidance tests using three planes in two weeks' time, putting their autonomous control software through its paces and ensuring that unmanned aircraft can independently avoid a crash."

This could get very interesting but I doubt we will ever see a passenger version,what ever next, a plane that lands itself. 
you don't get a second chance to make a first impression!
