UAS – Unmanned Aircraft Systems (European Legislation)

The European UAS legislation group are meeting on the 9.2.12 to discuss and quite probably enshrine laws to regulate the commercial and private use of flying robots (drones etc). As these robots become more affordable, sophisticated and available for private ownership (not withstanding commercial/authority use) legislation has become inevitable. The real interest here though is; could this legislation become the forerunner for legislation & regulation of social robots. Could it influence or even determine the way we accept robots into European airspace as well as society in general, whether flying, on wheels, tracks or even walking within our social, domestic, health and workplace spaces. For instance, could my telepresence mobile home robot go out and check on my car across the road or even perhaps go to my local shop for some milk causing a fatal accident? With Wifi and telepresence enabled navigation this is possible right now!

So how do we legislate against a robotic assault,  thief or spy when the defence offered is “somebody else hacked into my robot” or “it was an unforeseeable  technical glitch” let alone “no civilians were killed in this CIA drone attack”
