Good Drone Lab

The Good Drone Lab focuses on drones used in civil society and for the public good. Policy discussions regarding drones uses like this are relatively new. Recently we have witnessed drone use restrictions in several countries. By looking at the whole picture, the Good Drone Lab aims to build general frameworks for civil society use of drones. Our efforts have produced an award-winning way to estimate crowd size, a groundbreaking study of non-violent drone use, a series of NSF-funded classes on sociotechnical thinking, a host of publications, as well as public engagements with journalists and activists that have generated more than 100,000 video views.
