Abstract

Drones, also known as mini-unmanned aerial vehicles, have attracted increasing attention due to their boundless applications in communications, photography, agriculture, surveillance, and numerous public services. However, the deployment of amateur drones poses various safety, security, and privacy threats. To cope with these challenges, amateur drone surveillance has become a very important but largely unexplored topic. In this article, we first present a brief survey to show the stateof-the-art studies on amateur drone surveillance. Then we propose a vision, named Dragnet, tailoring the recently emerging Cognitive Internet of Things framework for amateur drone surveillance. Next, we discuss the key enabling techniques for Dragnet in detail, accompanied by the technical challenges and open issues. Furthermore, we provide an exemplary case study on the detection and classification of authorized and unauthorized amateur drones, where, for example, an important event is being held and only authorized drones are allowed to fly over.
