Welcome to the future of flood relief !
Flood is a natural disaster that humans can't forget of. And India being a peninsula is visited by floods very often.
Relief during floods in India is provided by dropping packets containing medicines and food through helicopters which hover from building to building to do the same. Moreover a lot of packets are dropped into the water and are wasted. Hence a major portion of the relief fund is wasted in helicopter fuel and packet loss.
DROP is a product that uses the latest technology to solve an age old problem. It uses a central communication system which sits on the helicopter and guides the packets to their respective targets with the help of Image processing and radio communication. This makes possible to deliver a lot of food packages at a single time with minimum loss. Thus a lot of money and people are saved.
