UAVs and FLOOD-serv testing in Bratislava

The municipality of Bratislava Devin will take part in piloting and testing the FLOOD-serv system in Bratislava region as it is located at the conflux of two major rivers, Danube and Morava. This fact makes the area prone to river flooding with the latest one occurred in June 2013.

In this framework, unmanned aircraft vehicles a.k.a. drones were used in order to capture pictures that will be tested via the Territory Management System (TMS) component in order to analyse the water surfaces, river banks and terrain of the municipality.
