As part of the CeBIT conference „Unmanned Systems & Solutions“ drones will be a major focus in terms of innovation, technology and matters of digitization. Drones are a key factor for future economic growth and do buzz several industries, politics and society. 

The panel on technology and digitization aims for discussing three critical issues that technical and digital solutions aim to encounter: What are drone technologies capable of? How can drones be integrated into our airspace? And how do we ensure safety and security? 

The panel wants to show solutions to the audience covering the fields of technology and digitization at once, because they are tied closely. It also focuses on discussing how these solutions will influence further economic growth and what problems they help to solve.
