Drone Patrol / Rescue system

Drone Patrol

Recently, extreme weather prompts wildfires which frequently go out of control. It is thus urgent for human beings to take action so as to alleviate habitat destruction and animal extinction.

Using artificial intelligence of things (AIoT), Drone Patrols are empowered to maneuver infrared thermal imaging cameras to watch over bushfires, estimate their possible directions, and collect information for further analysis.

Through real-time information, artificial intelligence (AI) is also enabled by Big Data to distinguish the surviving species, position them, and cooperate with Drone Patrols to map the path to facilitate rescue.
