Greg McNeal moderates panel on “Cities and Drones” at National League of Cities City Summit

November 21, 2016 | By Kylie Larkin — Professor Gregory S.¬†McNeal moderated a panel on “Cities and Drones: What City Leaders Need to Know about Unmanned Aerial Vehicles” at the National League of Cities City Summit held in Pittsburgh on November 19.

From the National League of Cities City Summit program:

The use of unmanned aviation systems, more commonly referred to as drones, has skyrocketed in the past two years. However, along with opportunity, drones present unique challenges and concerns for city government. Drones raise safety, privacy, nuisance and trespassing concerns, all of which are compounded by the lack of accountability associated with most drone operations today. This panel discussion will bring together industry experts with a focus on helping cities encourage innovation, while simultaneously protecting local interests in a rapidly evolving regulatory environment.
