Humanitarian UAV Network founder Patrick Meier led a weeklong UAV training mission in Nepal, teaching engineering students at Kathmandu University how to use drones and image-processing software for humanitarian and disaster-response scenarios.
In response to the devastating earthquake in April 2015, the students had been experimenting with drones, but lacked the necessary resources. Meier partnered with the university, Kathmandu Living Labs, DJI and Pix4D to provide the necessary equipment and training.
V1 Media interviewed Meier at the recent Commercial UAV Expo, where he talked about the work in Nepal. Watch the interview here.
