India Flying Labs is the India Chapter of the global Flying Labs network currently active in 31 countries. We are an open collaborative network of individuals and organisations keen on integrating emerging technologies for social good applications. We work with drones, drone-based data, robotics, machine learning, remote sensing, IoT and blockchain and our focus areas are disasters, environment, agriculture, healthcare, development and promotion of STEM education at schools using robotics. We encourage local leaders and empower them with technology and knowledge transfer so that they are better equipped to solve their own local challenges.
We promote local innovations and help them scale up by creating and sharing opportunities with them. We crowdsource and leverage each other’s knowledge, experience and talent to work on large scale projects related to conservation – such as tracking water potential, mapping rivers and monitoring habitat. We have been an active part of consultative meetings around policies and ethical guidelines. We hope to bridge the gap between communities and technologies by ensuring that the benefits of science and emerging technologies are available where they are needed the most.
