Abstract: Some years ago, it would have been amazing to see a drone flying and behaving ‘on its own’, not knowing whether it is distantly navigated by a human or it is somehow autonomic. Currently we observe that: (i) Youngsters can easily buy toy drones and navigate them distantly; (ii) Military drones realize sophisticated operations in dangerous environments. This indicates for impressive advances in the technologies underlying drone developments, and that is all about ICT – Information and Communication Technology: current ICT is often embedded in services and/or devices. It is ICT that brings together hardware, software, and net-ware features, to enable useful solutions in different domains, such as aviation. As it concerns particularly drones, they represent complex devices comprising mechanical and ICT ‘components’. Current drones can be piloted remotely. Further, being equipped with video cameras, they can provide fast access to images (and/or realtime videos) from a range of locations. Finally, advanced solar power supplies make it possible for drones to stay up for a very long time. Hence, this all makes current drone technology societally relevant. At the same time, many questions have not yet been answered (even though technology developed) – several of those questions are: Is current drone technology indeed reliable if used in critical (rescue) operations? How is the human navigating a drone responsible for what the drone would do? Who is responsible in the case of autonomic drones? Are current software platforms running on drones powerful enough to cover all possible situations that may pop up in the sky? To answer those and other related questions, it is necessary to ‘step in the shoes’ of a particular application domain since those issues are domain-specific – an answer concerning one domain is not necessarily valid for another domain. Hence, inspired by another paper in the current proceedings, we focus on land border security. We therefore aim at studying the usability of drone technology, with regard to the mentioned domain. For this reason, we firstly discuss drone technology in general and then we analyze its usability in land border security. This analysis is a contribution of the current position paper and inspiration for further research featuring the development of advanced context-aware drone platforms. (More)
