Hyderabad: Amazon Web Services (AWS) has featured innovations and applications of drones by Hyderabad-based dronetech company Marut Drones for use cases such as mosquito eradication and reforestation, as part of AWS Innovation Day series. Marut Drones is the only Indian company featured this year.
Marut Drones founder Prem Kumar Vislawath demonstrated how technology innovation helps in fighting vector-borne diseases with the help of artificial intelligence enabled drones and internet of things.
Prem Kumar Vislawath told Telangana Today, “In the last one year, Marut Zap drones have covered 78,000 acres of area, over 150 lakes, 21 kms of Musi stretch, and have impacted over one crore lives.”
He added, “Not just that, deploying drones has reduced larvae density by 40 per cent, reduced operational costs by 90 per cent, speeded operations by 10x, and enhanced lake coverage by 5x. This use case is not only relevant to India but also worldwide, as the disease burden has been increasing year-on-year.”
