Researchers test people’s reactions to drones

The altitude of the flight is a deciding factor in whether drones are a disturbance and a cause for concern when they fly over people's houses and gardens according to Domen Bajde & Jannek K. Sommer

The drones are above us, but they can give rise to various challenges when it comes to our privacy if they come too close. This was shown in an experiment where SDU researchers sent drones over the gardens of house owners in order to test their response to the presence of the drones.

In the experiment, the drones flew at a height of 25, 50 and 75 metres – for comparison, a lamppost measures approximately 10 metres.
