How this desi drone ensured the security of Chinese premier Xi Jinping

When Chinese Premier visited Mamallapuram last Friday his visit was made secure by special India-made drones. Xi Jinping arrived in Chennai for a 24-hour visit for an informal summit with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The way from Chennai airport to the temple town of Mamallapuram was reportedly surveyed and studied by aerial drone photography even before Premier Jinping made a visit. The route was of more than 50 km and the technology was developed by a team at Anna University.

An official who was working in the security arrangement of Premier Jinping told a noted newspaper, “These fixed-wing drones can map with a special resolution of 3cm, compared to Google Street view map that has a spatial resolution of 60 cm… This means anything that is of 3cm could be captured as an image, which includes things inside a parked car on the route.”
Before Jinping arrived, over the last 10 days the drones captured more than 30,000 high-resolution images which were about 14 megapixels each from a height of 100 m. A digital map was created using and stitching all these images and was converted into 3D visuals which could be reached through a mobile app.
