By Express News ServiceCHENNAI: The Centre for Aerospace Research (CASR) of Anna University will soon help the northeastern states in construction of roads in difficult terrains by providing accurate information to them by using spatial technology.
The CASR, which has expertise of preparing and handling unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), is likely to start the project from October 25, said officials of the centre.
In the first phase, at least five UAVs will be sent to Meghalaya for carrying out ground survey work for construction of roads in inaccessible areas and in subsequent phases, the project will be extended to other northeastern states.
The CASR officials said that earlier, satellites were used in conducting survey work but the accuracy of the information was not proper as images collected through satellites were of poor resolution.
The images collected by UAVs will be of good quality and appropriate analysis can be done using it.
