Drone Public is a research program comprised of multiple projects addressing the challenges related to the public’s encounter with civic drones. We investigate how the public image of civic drones and drone industry develops, and how it is shaped by public concerns, such as concerns about privacy. More fundamentally, our projects look into the very constitution of the public as an active force that shapes the future of drone technology, and examine how increased presence of drones transforms the meanings and boundaries between public and private.
- General public’s privacy concerns regarding drone use in private residential and public space (in collaboration with SDU’s Drone Center, Aalborg University and TBST)
- Public response to drone technology: Threats and opportunities (SDU’s ‘Lighthouse project’ in collaboration with IKV)
- Learning to Consume New Technology: A Market Systems Study of the Danish Emerging Drone Market (Jannek Sommer’s PhD project)
- Human-Drone Interaction Lab (HDI-lab) (led by Niklas Woermann)
