    Unmanned, unregulated & on White House grounds: Obama says drones need rules

    President Barack Obama has acknowledged that federal laws for unmanned aerial vehicles – or drones – lag behind the technology readily available to consumers. His remarks came hours after a small UAV was found to have crashed on White House grounds.

    Obama, speaking from India, told CNN that drones have magnificent potential, especially for commercial reasons, but overarching regulatory guidelines are lacking on this point.

    "We don't yet have the legal structures and the architecture both globally and within individual countries to manage them the way that we need to," Obama said, adding that his administration "is seeing if we can start providing some sort of framework that ensures that we get the good and minimize the bad."
