Students of IIT Madras have developed a technology called “Eye in the sky” which will use drones to help in disaster relief and surveillance.

The team is now developing an end-to-end solution which includes drones embedded with this technology to identify and help people trapped in disaster hit areas. The solution also finds a use case with Air Force, Army and NGOs for aerial surveillance, navigation and offer medical help to trapped citizens.
