German Railways to Test Anti-Graffiti Drones

By - Tuesday, May 28th, 2013

The purpose of the drones is to use infra-red cameras to collect evidence in order to prosecute vandals. The drones would be tested at rail depots soon, however, it is unclear how Germany’s anti-surveillance law will affect their use in a country where using cameras to film people is a sensitive issue, and where privacy is very highly valued. Deutsche Bahn spends about 7.6m euros (£6.5m; $10m) a year on graffiti removal. Each drone will cost about 60,000 euros and fly almost silently, up to 150m (495ft) above ground. source: BBC.
