A new group wants to represent businesses interested in using drones
There’s a new drone advocacy group in Washington, D.C. and Silicon Valley.
The Commercial Drone Alliance took off on Tuesday with founding board members including the likes of networking giant Cisco, a drone-centric data crunching startup called Data Wing, and drone startup Measure. Measure made news in September when the Federal Aviation Administration gave the business permission to fly more than 300 drones for aerial data-gathering projects.
