16:30 to 17:15

In the critical, life-threatening conditions in which forest fire surveillance drones operate, operational effectiveness and efficiency are of paramount importance. The development of technologies in three areas is the key to success:

  • Smart video sensors, improving the intelligence that is gathered.
  • Networks of neurons, enabling drones to operate using 100 times less power.
  • The deployment of drones in swarms, bio-inspired by ant colonies.
