Drones that respond quickly to disaster situations
Evaluating the level of crisis, and issuing care quickly and efficiently is crucial to the well being of communities during and after disasters. Using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and remote sensing platforms to gather aerial images of disaster zones can improve that care. Providing aid organizations and emergency services with crucial data on the scale of the disaster and the areas that require immediate attention allows responders to coordinate relief efforts and deploy aid effectively. Access to this information helps significantly improve responsiveness to disasters, natural and humanitarian.
