The Buzz About Mota

Lily Next-Gen Drone was born. This new drone has all of the latest and greatest technology that you can fit in a small drone. Some of the cool features of this drone are smart hover, follow me, and self drive (from your phone) mode.
– Nathan Kemmerer, Innovation Freak Podcast
MOTA Chief Executive Michael Faro said in an interview Monday that he envisions a future where drone-to-drone communication could decentralize the system for tracking drones, while providing greater transparency as to the whereabouts of drone flights. ‘Think of when we have hundreds of thousands of drones flying in one area at a time,’ Faro said. ‘That’s hundreds of thousands of eyes in the sky. No centralized place should have a monopoly over such data.
