FAA Unveils Drone Rules: Autonomy Is In, Drone Delivery Is Out - IEEE Spectrum

FAA Unveils Drone Rules: Autonomy Is In, Drone Delivery Is Out - IEEE Spectrum | Remotely Piloted Systems | Scoop.it
The proposed rules are surprisingly reasonable, but there are things that need work

. . . 

One thing that is not addressed here is autonomy: can commercial drones fly themselves? The FAA rules are clearly based around human operators, but the FAA’s UAS FAQ also says that an unmanned aircraft can be flown by “a pilot via a ground control system, or autonomously through use of an on-board computer, communication links and any additional equipment that is necessary for the UA to operate safely.”

The most complete summary of the rules out there this side of the 195 page FAA document. Great reference!
