DJI drones have saved more than 500 people worldwide

DJI’s interactive drone rescue map has reached an important milestone, with over 500 people already on it. The service, introduced earlier this year, has allowed individuals and organizations to add their drone rescue efforts. The map reached the indicated mark back in October, but only now the Chinese company announced this in its press release after carefully analyzing all cases for their accuracy.

DJI Senior Director of Public Safety Implementation Romeo Durscher: “Just a few years ago, drones were an experimental technology for public safety innovators, and civilians with drones often volunteered to assist professionals in emergencies. Today, public safety agencies around the world have adopted drones as standard equipment, and UAVs save people from danger every few days. This is an astounding success story for public safety and for the people living on drones today. ”

The 500th rescued person added to the DJI interactive map turned out to be a missing 93-year-old woman – she was discovered by a drone with a thermal imager in a dark field of Missouri. The Cass County Sheriff’s Office has released footage of the rescue operation, which clearly shows a bright yellow object in a field. Vice President DJI for Political and Legal Affairs Brendan Schulman (Brendan Schulman) stressed: ” Now when more than 500 people rescued drones operating in accordance with the basic rules, we can see how reasonable the rules of the use of drones literally save lives and the same shows how users can be more extensive surgery drones in the night time and over the people when they are allowed in large scale. Successful use of unmanned aerial vehicles in emergency situations also clearly demonstrates the important benefits to society. And since today is enhanced threat of ban: policy proposals are often aimed at the prohibition or restriction of access to the technology of drones , or increase the cost of such equipment for the bodies of social security. “

Earlier this year, DJI unveiled its interactive drone rescue map to showcase how UAVs are being used in search and rescue missions around the world. The map shows rescue sites from 27 countries on five continents (there are no cases in Russia on this map), with the first case dating back to 2013 in Canada. Today it is reported that drones are involved in rescue operations about once a week.

The map includes cases where drones helped find people missing in the forest or dropped supplies for those who were in distress at sea. Not all drone rescue missions are recorded on it but confirmed cases of immediate rescue or assistance provided by drones.
