UAV to Monitor Fires

Melbourne's Metropolitan Fire Brigade has announced that it's going to deploy an Australian-developed "eye in the sky" remotely-controlled aerial camera from WA-based developer Cyber Technology.Two four-fan CyberQuad UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) will be used to hover above fires to identify hotspots and send realtime vision to a control centre. One will be fitted with a high-definition camera, while the other will carry a standard definition camera and a thermal imaging camera.
