Project Kwago is a multi-sector thermal drone with anti-collision and ADSB systems.
Kwago is a Search and Rescue drone specializing in night operations. It is an app-based system equipped with a thermal imaging camera to detect heat signatures from the ground. It also has other features like pattern recognition, auto take-off and landing, collision avoidance, sonars, ads-b system, etc.
The Philippines are prone to natural calamities like storms, flood and earthquakes. Most drones used in search and rescue only takes photos or videos for damage assessment or aerial survey during daytime. We know that it is hard to conduct rescue operations at night. Rescuers only rely on lighting equipment to look for survivors like flashlights, floodlights, etc. It takes a lot of time walking through debris and doing searches at ground level.
