Ajith-mentored Team Dhaksha uses drone to disinfect places

A year ago, Ajith mentored Team Dhaksha from Madras Institute of Technology that went on to win multiple medals at the Drone Olympics. Now, the team has come forward to help the Government in disinfecting the places to prevent Coronavirus pandemic.

Talking about it, Arul Sengan, a project associate of the team, says, “There are about 70 members in the team, headed by Dr K Senthil Kumar. We make all kinds of drones — for agriculture, surveillance, etc. Now, we are working in collaboration with the state government to spray disinfectants, especially human accessibility is difficult. For this purpose, we’ve modified the drones with special nozzles to spray disinfectants. These drones are flown using petrol and can be continuously flown throughout the day. On Saturday, we covered around 3 lakh/sqm and sprayed almost 900 litres of disinfectant.”

“Whenever he is here in the city and free, he comes as a technical advisor. He might join us on this project as well if he’s free. Whenever he goes abroad, he manages to gather information on developments in the UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) field and shares them with us. Recently, we developed drone taxi and he contributed a lot in its development,” says Arul.
