The drone industry thinks the Triad might be a “perfect” place to call home, according to an article by Bertrand Gutierrez in the Winston-Salem Journal. That’s thanks to the area’s elevation, “ideal terrain and an educated workforce,” the article says.

From Gutierrez’s article:

“The drone industry has its sights set on Winston-Salem and Greensboro, according to executives in the field of unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones, equipped with sophisticated eye-in-the-sky technologies.

First, however, the state General Assembly must hash out regulations that protect privacy and guard against possible abuses by law enforcement, according to civil-liberties groups, industry executives and state lawmakers.”
