“The overall message that I hope comes through today is PEP: preparation, engagement, perseverance. This was fundamental to everything we achieved”

“The multi-role drone could cater for multiple markets from the same area. This changes the economics and the business case”

“The first and most important thing when we integrated into a healthcare delivery: visit the clinic, understand their needs, help them know what’s in it for them and gain their buy-in”

We were fortunate to be joined by Daniel Ronen from UAVAid for the third episode in our Frontier Tech Talks webinar series.

He spoke about UAVAid’s experience in integrating new technologies into existing systems. This was based on his recent experience embedding UAVs (or ‘drones’) into a real-life healthcare delivery, anti-poaching surveillance activity, and mapping. This required not just a mix of technical capabilities, but also engaging a mix of stakeholders and ensuring the technology was appropriate and usable by different people.
