IT security whiz sets sights on commercial drone management
The Federal Aviation Administration has taken a hard line so far against most commercial uses of unmanned aerial vehicles (i.e., drones) for safety and privacy reasons. But one other good reason for taking things slowly is that the software for managing such drones has trailed hardware development.
A new company called PixiePath seeks to address the software shortage by delivering SaaS-based tools for controlling fleets of commercial drones. Because of the FAA taking its time to outline rules, PixiePath could find its first big opportunities up North or overseas in what’s expected to be a multibillion commercial drone market before long.
