"Drone" is a dirty word at this week's drone industry convention in Washington.
Unmanned aerial vehicles may be exploding in popularity, but among industry leaders, their common moniker -- "drone" -- is rapidly going out of style.
Man may not rule the road for much longer. Already set to fill the heavens within a few years, the drone industry is looking beyond the sky to opportunities on land and under water.
"Our paramount concern is safety. We must ensure the commercial use of [drones] takes place in a safe and responsible manner, whenever commercial use occurs. The decision also underscores the immediate need for a regulatory framework for small" drones, said the group's president and CEO, Michael Toscano.
Mr. Toscano noted that the FAA's announcements were better late than never as the FAA has missed every deadline laid out for drone integration in the reauthorization act.
