NASA is building an air traffic control system for drones

NASA is building an air traffic control system for dronesNASA is developing an air traffic control system for drones. The New York Times reports the US space agency is working on creating a management system for vehicles that fly at around 400 to 500 feet off the ground — much lower than conventional aircraft — at its Moffett Field base around four miles from Google's Mountain View headquarters. The system would check for other low-flying drone traffic, help the small unmanned vehicles avoid buildings, and scan for adverse weather conditions that might knock a drone out of the sky. NASA's drone traffic control centers will be automated While the drone system would follow the same principles as full-fledged air traffic control, the NYT says its control center would be fully automated.
