FIT Students Developed a Unique Device for Drones

FIT Dron

A four-member team of students, in collaboration with the faculty, has developed a unique Dronetag device that makes drones safer and more usable. This independent IoT device uses mobile and satellite technology to impart the location of the drone, making any drone visible in the flight tracker. It can be used, for example, to coordinate several drones with a rescue helicopter or to deliver parcels. The faculty also owns a six-engine drone that is 1.2 meters in diameter and can carry up to 6 kg of cargo.
