And the funny thing is that despite the big words: "innovation", "high technology", "technology of the future" - prototypes of drones have long been used in everyday life. Take, for example, the function of any modern car – cruise control. Well, why don't you have a drone? And he rides without the help of a driver, and he regulates the speed himself, and adheres to the lane.
However, it's not that simple. Russian legislation does not allow driving drones without the pilot himself. Here is such a paradox.
And even the pilot project for the operation of drones launched in Russia in 2018, approved by the Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation of 26 N 1415, did not allow specialized cars to drive without the presence of a technologist who will observe the integrity and safety of driving.
Tests are continuing, the promised leap in the field of innovative cars was promised by mid-2023: it is planned to launch space navigation aids, a number of specialized routes for unmanned trucks will be formed, for example, along the M-11 and M-2 highways. And the experiment also involves the expansion of "unmanned routes" to another 25 regions.
