Greensboro could use drones for emergency incidents

Recommended Posts

A drone technology firm is looking to break into the Triad, with a proposal to install a $5.7 million unmanned aircraft system that arrives at emergency incidents before police do.


"Olaeris will present a plan to the Greensboro City Council on Tuesday for the installation o f the AEVA aircraft system, which launches automatically once a 911 call is received. The unit arrives at the destination in 90 seconds or less and begins transmitting live video from above to police dispatch centers so officers "can actually see what’s happening at the scene."

If the city moves forward, Greensboro would be one of the first cities in the United States and the first in North Carolina to use such technology for this purpose. The system may be manufactured in High Point while Olaeris would establish a regional support office in Greensboro that would support a six-state Mid-Atlantic region.
