Nokia OVNI Drones: Shaping Connected Cities
Nokia has trial-launched drones for search and rescue operations. Drones known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) were deployed to locate a missing person at sea. Once found, the UAV informed the victim via a loudspeaker that help is on the way and another UAV delivered a first aid kit to the victim. Drones equipped with LIDAR technology and thermal imaging technology can conduct aerial surveillance and capture accurate images on emergency and natural disaster scenes, enabling first responders to have a better understanding of the situation, and provide faster response time to dispatch emergency relief services and resources. Additionally, the technology promotes better coordination across government agencies (e.g., police agencies, fire departments, paramedics, etc.), via data sharing of situational awareness data provided by drones. Additionally, Nokia recently announced the registration of its drone named OVNI with the European Union Intellectual Property Office as a telecommunication device for civilian and military use.
