A Hungarian gadget might turn out to be the solution for a long-standing problem puzzling the Colombian army.
Developed by the highest-trained IT experts, engineers and AI specialists working at the Budapest-based firm, Ott-One, have developed a drone which will help identify the exact location of coca-producing farms.
To help curb illegal farming activity, the gadget will be used to monitor the changes taking place within the plantation cycle in villages across Colombia.
Ott-One first garnered attention just last year, but CEO Bálint Májer and Gábor Kósa handed over a set of prototypes to the regional authorities just one month afterwards.
The software works with a specially-developed camera system. To ensure civilians won’t be able to figure out the technology, or hijack the drones, the gadgets have also been encrypted sufficiently.
