Chinese drone maker DJI is developing a free app that would enable smartphones to identify and track a drone in flight, Reuters reports. Pending regulatory approval, the app would be released in 2020. Remote identification technology currently available requires purchase and equipment. “We’ve created a remote identification solution that works with what people already have,” DJI Vice President of Policy and Legal Affairs Brendan Schulman said. Those who raise concerns about drones committing privacy violations call for restrictions, Schulman said, but “rather than restrict operators, you can punish the operations that are actively harmful.”
