"Apple is committed to protecting people's privacy, including processing this data to blur faces and licence plates prior to publication", the company said. Current rules prohibit nighttime drone flights or operations over people without a waiver from the FAA. The data collected from these operations will help the USDOT and the FAA craft new enabling rules that allow more complex low-altitude operations, identify ways to balance local and national interests related to UAS integration, improve communications with local, state and tribal jurisdictions, address security and privacy risks, and accelerate the approval of operations that now require special authorizations.
The FAA has said regulations are necessary to protect the public and the National Airspace System from bad actors or errant hobbyists. The projects are focused on enabling long-range pipeline inspection, agricultural surveying, and defibrillator delivery by drone.
