Privacy and drones: Unmanned aerial vehicles

It is likely that Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are going to be used more often. A huge disadvantage of UAVs is that they can fly everywhere and thus violate the privacy. This problem can be solved by determining how much privacy may be violated and by continue checking if this limit is not exceeded. It is also needed that UAV-using organisations have restrictions on what they can do with the UAVs and how much information the can collect. Another measure could be to design the UAVs in a way, that they can’t violate privacy.
