Emerging Fourth Industrial Revolution technology breakthroughs in fields such as robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) have a transformative role to play in the development sector, in addition to their well-known and growing impact in manufacturing and other industries.

Drones, the most well-known robotics technology, are already being used by humanitarian agencies to transform and open up a diverse range of activities: monitoring illegal logging in the Amazon, surveying natural disaster sites, delivering medicines to rural villages, monitoring wildlife, and a host of other use cases.

Data and images collected from aerial and marine surveillance can quickly be analyzed and processed into 3D maps, digital elevation models, and many other products that can provide evidence-based input to enhance decision-making.

In this session, we'll focus on several topics:

  • What is a civil drone used for?
  • Drone Mapping and photogrammetry.
  • Barriers, challenges and issues we can face.
  • Some of the examples of applied robotics across humanitarian and development context.
  • How can the humanitarian sector influence the development and use of drones?
