With billions being invested in research and development, the potential of these unmanned aerial vehicles extend beyond recreational reasons. Regulations and public perception among other factors are constantly changing as the technology develops. Due to this, the Drone Readiness Index was introduced to aid drone operators in gauging their areas of improvement as well as strengths. In this podcast, Millie Radovic explains to us what the Drone Readiness Index, and how well Malaysia is doing in that index.
