SEEK FOR AND CARRY WATER / UAV

SEEK FOR AND CARRY WATER

Africa is short of water terribly, local women and children have to take heavy water tanks with dirty water and walk a long distance, the rugged routes cause more difficulties for them, but they have to go there and back for several times a day, and it takes 2 or 3 hours to have a round trip. To solve this problem, it can greatly reduce the time of water seeking and carrying if the advantages of unmanned aerial vehicles can be applied here. This design can automatically detect the headwater points, filtrate the water and carry it back after fulfilling the tank, and the amount of water is enough for a person for 3 days.
