Nishita Dewan of Nesta and Lucy Gosling of Transport for west Midlands exploring what drones might mean for the lives of ordinary people

Nesta is a global innovation foundation backing new ideas to tackle the big challenges of our time. The Flying High Challenge is taking five locations Bradford, London, Preston, Southampton and West Midlands on a six month exploratory journey to identify and better understand the potential and problems raised by rapid advances in drone technology. The Challenge will also lead to designs for further programmes to ensure that drones are slave to our needs not a means of enslaving the people.
