DJI take us inside their exciting new project, where they’re using drones to take on malaria in Africa.
Malaria is a treatable disease, but still claims the lives of thousands of Africans every year. One of the main ways that malaria is transmitted is through mosquito bites and the insects are extremely common in this region. In this video, we hear how DJI are using their drones to coat crops in Zanzibar with a biological liquid that stops the larvae of mosquitos living there. This massively reduces the risk of farmer’s contracting malaria.
This doc points out how drones could play a huge role in protecting people here from getting the disease. Spraying each crop by hand is really time consuming and using helicopters is very expensive. Drones could provide the answer for a difficult challenge for communities across Africa. It’s interesting to see a brand like DJI thinking about the ways that their products could be used to make the world a better place. It’s an awesome vid from them.
