Mehdi Saleh’s project, Drones For Refugees, is truly inspiring. From Drones For Refugees:
This project aims to support the safe arrival of refugees from Turkey to the Greek island of Lesbos. It’s a real-time drone monitoring system and can cover the area of the Mediterranean where refugees usually cross during the day or night. It streams live footage of the refugee’s boats and their exact geographical location. This data will be shared with volunteers, search and rescue teams and other organizations through an online streaming platform in real-time. It will support the decrease in loss of human lives by notifying rescue teams with no delay.
