Drones to track housing, infra projects in Amaravati

Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu instructed the officials of AP-Capital Region Development Corporation (AP-CRDA) and Amaravati Development Corporation (ADC) to keep track of the progress of housing and various infrastructure projects in the capital region with the help of drones once in a fortnight and report the same to him.

With the help of data generated by the drones, necessary action to ensure timely completion of the projects would be taken, he said in a review meeting on the activities of the CRDA and ADC at the Secretariat on Wednesday.

He said drones were an efficient way to monitor the grounded projects.

Drone Corporation

The government formed the Drone Corporation as a subsidiary of A.P. State FiberNet Limited (APSFL) on Monday vide G.O MS No. 2 issued by the Energy, Infrastructure and Investment Department.

Keeping in view the potential of drones, the State had decided to utilize drones in sectors such as police, mining, municipal administration and urban development, agriculture and allied sectors, for monitoring, capturing images and videos at high resolutions, generating 2D maps, 3D models and point cloud models.
