Undas Drone

GMA News Online:

The Manila city government will deploy a drone as its eye in the sky over the Manila North Cemetery, Metro Manila’s biggest cemetery, during the Undas (All Saints’ and All Souls’ Days) weekend.

City government officials expect the drone to help them spot brewing or potential trouble, radio dzBB’s Carlo Mateo reported Friday.

This is great, kudos to Manila city government for coming up with the idea. Not only it has a good chance to solve crowd-monitoring problem, it is also a potentially transferrable solution for events including calamities. The only thing I worry is the drone’s battery life. It typically lasts up to 30 minutes only.
