It was like something out of science fiction, but it is very real and also very much needed at this time. The COVID-19 Click to enlargecoronavirus and the general health of the public is top of mind right now and a new technology partnership is working to make it easier to identify a wide manner of respiratory illnesses among crowds of people.
A leading manufacturer within the commercial unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) market – Draganfly Inc. (CSE: DFLY, OTCQB: DFLYF, Forum)– has joined two cutting-edge firms on a project that is essentially unheard of in the Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS), and unmanned vehicle sector.
The Vital Intelligence Project:
Working with healthcare data services and deep learning company Vital Intelligence Inc., in conjunction with the University of South Australia, and using technology developed with help from the Australian Department of Defence – Defence Science and Technology Group (DST), this team-up is working on a revolutionary health and respiratory monitoring platform.
This platform combines modified UAVs and RPAS with new and existing camera networks commercialized for health monitoring to detect infectious and respiratory conditions. The platform can monitor temperatures and respiratory rates among crowds, be they on the street, in the workforce, airlines, cruise ships, or anywhere.
The platform can target potential at-risk groups, such as seniors in care facilities, but also specific areas like convention centers, border crossings, or critical infrastructure facilities.
