Elaborating on the projects and drone-based services of IIT Guwahati, Director IIT Guwahati Prof TG Sitharam said, “Since the inauguration of the Drone Centre at IIT Guwahati, there have been several projects where the use of drones is sought for faster data collection, whether it is a land survey, river mapping, agriculture, or healthcare and disaster management. IIT Guwahati will maximize its efforts to provide drone-based services to the state and the region considering the difficult terrain.
