AbstractThe potential benefits of unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones, used in civilian life are countless. Drones can perform many functions that save time, money, and lives. However, other uses of drones are more questionable. Drones can make crimes easier to commit, and can easily invade a person's privacy. Some states and municipalities have banned them, even before they have been detected in the area.
