Inspiring & Unexpected: The Winners & Finalists in 2017

Drone Pioneer Winner 2017: ECOSwat

In spite of computer models and all engineering know-how, mankind still cannot predict droughts with certainty. Through the drones’ images by ECOSwat, people get now the overview and are convinced to take responsibility for their own homes. The International Cooperation of Technology with Local Administrative is developing educational programs for the population to develop a more adapted, safer habitat. Learnings from the ECOSwat project not only follow the UN-formulated goals of a sustainable society, but also provide a fundamental basis for other impact driven projects.

Joschka Fischer & Company‘s Special Price for the Approach of Technology and Society goes to Elephant Survival Organization (ESO)

The initiative ESO is founded on the belief that aerial surveillance is a required ingredient to win the war to protect African Wildlife: and that it is inevitable that this service will be delivered by drones. The question isn’t drones or planes. It’s how to use the drones effectively and untangle the many operational options they propose. This process has led to a de-facto consensus with conservation experts and this has led to a public convergence of traditional and progressive Protected Area strategies.

A safe Step into new Places: BathyCopter by RIEGL

Instruments and methods to repeatedly survey waterbodies in a cheap, safe, and efficient manner have high potential. RIEGL‘s BathyCopter is a laser rangefinder which can measure into the water and provides river profiles with an accuracy and resolution that by far outperform the traditional method of wading through the river with a GPS pole. The BathyCopter therefore represents a perfect example how state of the art UAV technology together with innovative sensors provide data acquired in comparatively short time even in areas which would have been dangerous to access on the ground.
