The Flying High Challenge Aims to Shape the Future of Drones in UK Cities#drone #droneday

Home Flying High Challenge

From Flying High Challenge:

collaborative engagement with up to five cities across the UK to shape the future of drones and drone systems

Run by Nesta’s Challenge Prize Centre, in partnership with Innovate UK, the Flying High Challenge is the first programme of its kind to convene city leaders, regulators, public services, businesses and industry around the future of drones in cities.

By collaborating with selected cities, the Flying High Challenge will support cities to develop plans based on local community needs

The Challenge will:

  • Shape city plans on the future of drones in UK cities, exploring specific applications of drones within cities and hazardous environments
  • Identify and address key complexities such as technology, infrastructure, legal, regulations, safety and privacy
  • Detail technical and economic plans that unlock market opportunity through regulatory testbeds, open innovation technology challenges and live, real-world demonstrations
