Biological plant protection with MikroKopter Technology
The MikroKopter flies with waypoints over a demarcated area and distributes there speed controlled, small balls filled with parasitic wasps. These wasps fight then effective and environmentally friendly against pests.
The project was implemented by the "Tüftelberger". On the 8th of August 2014 a very interesting video documentation has been shown by the German TV station SWR.. Please click here um zum to watch the video.
Search & Rescue
Equipped with a thermal imaging camera and video transmitter the MikroKopter helps finding the animals. On the thermal camera you can see them it as red points, because they are warmer than the surrounding grass. Many animals were found and rescued by this techninlogy already.
The OktoKopter flies over to the field in a search pattern. If a heat source is found, the pilot can store the current position of the MikroKopter. After the field was completely searched, these points (including altitude and direction of view) can now be loaded as waypoints into the copter, which then flies to these points for a closer inspection.
The Swiss television documented the rescue in this video.
