VIDEO: Drone Developed By Indian Origin Student Can Help Victims in Natural Disasters

An Indian origin student, Luqmaan Patel, has developed a drone that can bridge communication gaps after the event of a natural disaster.

An Indian origin student, Luqmaan Patel from the UK, has developed a drone that can help victims of natural disasters.

After a natural disaster, it often takes several hours for victims to reach out to friends and families, as well as to first responders and rescue operation units. This is often because of the damage inflicted to communication infrastructure during a natural disaster.

Patel’s invention aims to address this problem and bridge this communication gap.

“I felt there was more application for drones, than just simply flying it and taking landscape images. I wanted to push the application forward and create more of a beneficial use for drones,” said Patel to Times of India
