Unmanned aerial vehicles should be deployed as a means of problem-solving, not as a novelty, claims Nesta.

Nishita Dewan, the lead on the Flying High Challenge, explained to Commercial Drone Professional that a key aspect in delivery drone-based solutions within urban areas is solving a problem. Dewan said that drones should not be shoehorned into the mainstream unnecessarily.

The Flying High Challenge is a programme developed by UK charity Nesta in partnership with the Government’s Innovate UK, and is designed to help the UK become a “global leader in shaping drone systems that place people’s needs first.”
