China’s DJI launches new drones geofencing system

SHARE

China: To keep its drones from flying into restricted airspaces, China’s DJI has launched a public beta version of its new geofencing system called Geospatial Environment Online (GEO) in North America and Europe. The upgrade will provide drone users with up-to-date guidance on locations where flight may be restricted by regulation or raise safety or security concerns. It will also give live information about areas temporarily restricted from flight due to forest fires, major stadium events, VIP travel and other changing circumstances. The system will allow drone operators with verified DJI accounts to self-authorize and temporarily unlock flight in some locations. Certain areas where drone flight is not allowed, such as Washington D.C., will remain as unlockable no-fly zones.
