Drones for Eco Park

Yesterday the HIDCO board met. It approved a proposal to buy two drones to ensure safety and security of tourists in a smart way. It would also be used for better crowd management especially near the entry gates and water edge. The control unit would be located at Control Room of Eco Park Office. The images from the drones would supplement the inputs from CCTVs that will also have their video feeds displayed in the Control Room. Later, we plan to use drones for random checks on busy road crossings, melas, immersion ghats etc.

The drones (DJI Phantom) would have a 12 MP camera, intelligent flight system with live HD view. A demonstration was organised at Eco Park on 26th Jan 2016. Here is a link and a photo:
