Republic Day 2022: IIT Guwahati drones start-up to perform show at event in Assam
IIT Guwahati’s start-up named Drones Tech Lab will perform a drone show at Republic Day event in Kamrup, Assam.
NEW DELHI: The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati’s drone start-up named Drones Tech lab will perform a drone show at the Republic Day 2022 event to be held in Kamrup, Assam. It would be a first of its kind in the north-east region.
The drones developed by the start-up Drones Tech Lab have been successfully providing solutions in several fields such as disaster management, agriculture, survey, and mapping, said an official statement from the institute.
In order to solve problems of floods and dengue in north-eastern parts of the country, a drone-based mapping solution integrated with post-process kinematics was deployed to help get absolute accuracy and remove the need for GCPs (Ground Control Points) for absolute precision.
Speaking about the participation of IIT Guwahati startup Drones Tech Lab, Professor TG Sitharam, Director, IIT Guwahati mentioned that since the inauguration of the Drone Centre at IIT Guwahati, there have been various projects where the use of drones is sought for faster data collection, whether it is a land survey, river mapping, agriculture, and healthcare and disaster management. IIT Guwahati will maximize its efforts to provide drone-based services to the state and the region considering the difficult terrain. The present drone show at the Republic Day event will help in publicising this technology for the benefit of the masses.
Biswajit Dey, Drones Tech Labs, mentioned that he and his team were elated to be part of the Research Park at IIT Guwahati which has facilitated its participation in the Republic day drone show event and other projects with the district authorities. “We would like to provide drone services to the region with all the expertise available with us and expand our reach to all possible sectors. This will greatly benefit the population in enhancing various services in a shorter time with higher efficiency,” he said.
