Drones are Bringing the Internet to Rural Farmers in Sicily
Agricultural drones could help predict crop patterns
Italian-based Catanese R&D startup Heli-Lab has launched a drone project that features the use of drones to bring the Internet to areas in Sicily where there is no connection. The remote-controlled drones are employed for a wide range of activities, namely for agricultural, industrial and insurance purposes.
The tasks delegated to the drones are different and increase with the ability to equip the APR-specific technology. On the side, the drones are also transformed into real PCs and hot spots, thus collecting a large amount of data in flight and transferring them to the cloud, as well as serving as Internet Access Points.
