Participation in the “The UAE Drones for Good” 2017 competition

The Wireless and Mobile Communications Laboratory (WMCL) of the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications has entered the international competition Drones for Good with the proposal entitled ‘Remote Refugee Rescue & Drone Assisted Telemedicine (Drones4Sea)’.

More than one million refugees have tried to reach Europe by crossing the Mediterranean Sea the last couple of years; a humanitarian crisis of unprecedented proportions. The main sea route is the eastern Mediterranean route where Greece is the entry point towards Europe.
