    DescriptionDrones mesh it up in Vietnam
    Managing a natural disaster like a flood is so difficult because often there are many unknowns - responders urgently need real time information on water levels in the swollen rivers for instance. Installing monitoring kit across long stretches of river is expensive and the sensors need replacing regularly. So how about deploying a squadron of drones to pick up the data instead? That’s been happening in a trial in Vietnam. Dr Trung Duong, at Queen’s University Belfast tells us more.
