Friday, August 10, 2012
Unmanned aerial vehicles - or drones - may soon get Alberta airspace and could become big business here.
While the federal government considers armed drone patrols, commercial drones could monitor Alberta field, forest fires and pipelines. But critics say drones will invade your privacy.

Joining us for this discussion are Sterling Cripps, Chief Operating Officer of the Canadian Centre for Unmanned Vehicle Systems; Sharon Polsky, National Chair of the Canadian Association of Professional Access and Privacy Administrators; and Alex Ramirez-Serrano, Director of the Autonomous Reconfigurable Robotic Systems Laboratory at the Schulich School of Engineering, University of Calgary.
