Early warning for natural disasters

Queen's researcher drone story


A researcher from Queen’s University Belfast has invented a new system which uses drones to provide early warnings for natural disasters. This new low cost telecommunication system acts as a wifi ‘hotspot’ when phone signal is disrupted during extreme weather.

QUB is one of our key stakeholders developing cutting-edge innovative global solutions like this telecommunication drone system.
