DJI this week announced new plans to expand the list of its restricted flight locations to include places like prisons and power plants.
The software update is an expansion of its geofencing program, a virtual barrier which literally prohibits the drone from taking off or flying into areas in its geofence. DJI already uses geofencing in “no-fly-zones,” which are mostly airports and Washington, D.C.
Think that just sounds like more limitations for drone pilots? It’s not. I outline the two reasons why everyone should applaud DJI’s move in my latest post over at Drone Coalition. Check it out here.
