Environmental monitoring has been revolutionized by a drone of 7kg capable of flying at 5 km/h speed and “observing”. Observing what? All that is necessary for a solid environmental monitoring: forests, lakes, glaciers, and other often inaccessible places up to now, at least from the air.
Born from the collaboration between AERMATICA and the University of Milano-Bicocca, the HyUAV, so this drone for environmental monitoring is named, is unique in its kind. The professor of the Department of Environmental Sciences, Territory and Earth Sciences, Sergio Cogliati, explains why in his interview to Ideegreen.it.
