Although UAVs increasingly popular, but still criticized the security risks and privacy issues.
Local time on the evening of March 4, of unknown origin UAVs over Paris again. This time, the police tried to drive one of them to start tracking, but ultimately failed to seize the UAV operator.

"Unmanned aerial vehicles capable into the crowd, and cause of death, just as they did in the US It also can be used to crash the plane, causing the effect of a bird strike aircraft engines; even some of the drones can load 1 kg This is enough to carry explosives and spray steam. "Professor of the University of Birmingham David Dunn told the BBC.
He also questioned the proposed registration system, "law-abiding citizens to have registered, but it is difficult to prevent terrorists and other criminals to buy drones from the outside, and then use them in here." David Dunn said.
British existing unmanned aircraft management method is developed by the UK Civil Aviation Authority, which prohibits unmanned aircraft close to 150 meters near the busy waterway, unmanned aircraft must be at least 50 meters away from any aircraft above, prohibiting the use of weight over 20 kg or more unmanned aircraft, but less than 20 kilograms of unmanned aircraft can be used within the operator's line of sight.
The report in addition to the establishment of property rights registration system, other proposals also include: improving the use of geo-fencing, and other software to ensure that the UAV by GPS will not fly into prohibited areas; police clear guidance on how to implement existing safety rules; kite or other signs to indicate the safe use of unmanned aerial vehicles; more guidance UAV operators should buy what insurance.
News website Businessinsider believe that if the EU introduced stricter regulations UAV, Amazon is likely to be a hit. After being in the United States because too many restrictions, Amazon has begun testing its UAV delivery schedule in Cambridge area.

By 2018, expects the global UAV market will rise to at least $ 1 billion, the market demand will soon erupt. March 5 released report predicts that by 2050, the industry provides 150,000 jobs for the EU.
Currently, the UAV is mainly due to photography, taking pictures and measurements, but the scope is expanding the use of unmanned aerial vehicles, UAVs will be used for search and rescue as well as geographical surveys, and Amazon is developing tests using UAV to deliver the goods.
"The Economist" that the drone bring improvements to public safety is greater than the threat, such as whether wind power group cracks and power line inspection, you can make these checks to reduce costs by drones.
