The fight against malaria has been improved significantly, but there is really a lot of work to be done. The anti-larval sprays have been considered more expensive and time-consuming, so you will not always be able to afford spraying the entire area you need. Now, a mix of technology has made it possible in making the mosquito battle more practical and affordable. The Aberystwyth University of Wales and Zanzibar Malaria Elimination Program of Tanzania have affiliated on a push that uses drones to survey malaria hot zones. It will identify the water-laden malaria-carrying mosquito areas that are suitable to breed. In this scenario, the Phantom 3 of DJI has the ability to cover a large rice field in just 20 minutes and its data can also be processed during afternoon timing.
Phantom 3 has the ability to discover and spray infected areas within hours and it can avoid outbreaks from getting started. Next step might be bringing the drone images to smart-phones in order to guide the spray teams and in tracking their entire progress. The spray teams will be able to make a beeline for affected areas and report them back instead of just getting general information. It has been considered a while before drone-assisted spraying discovers widespread use. There are some specific concerns about drones as it might interrupt the local wildlife and initiate some privacy issues. The researchers are hopeful that the providing awareness to the residents would make them more comfortable using advanced technology. It would wipe out malaria virtually in their entire neighborhoods without wasting their valued time.
