Singapore dispatching service to control drones

Singapore has started studying the problem related to the UAV control. According to the authorities, flying drones can be dangerous for residents of densely populated places. It was decided to organize a dispatching service which tracks UAV movements.

Experts from Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore and Nanyang Technological University will embark upon creation of the hardware and software system. They will develop a set of rules for flights and a system for controlling UAVs in the air.

Stations with dispatchers will be built in order to monitor drone movements throughout Singapore. They will control UAV’s routes and speed. The authorities are planning to improve legislation and set general standards: a fixed height and distance of flights.

It is believed that the project will be carried out in 4 years.
