Researchers at the University of Utah have developed a video game simulation that uses a three-dimensional (3D) model of Salt Lake City and data about planned drone paths to determine potential problems.

The researchers are developing the game for the Utah Department of Transportation, which is working with the Federal Aviation Administration to prepare for the widespread use of commercial drones in the coming years.

The game also includes simulations for drones that could potentially carry people.

The U.S. government recently estimated that about 110,000 commercial drones are operating in the U.S., and expects that figure to grow to about 450,000 by 2022.
