Our guest is Joel Kaiser, who is an International Project Director with WeRobotics! With over 15 years of experience in humanitarian aid and disaster response, he has now shifted his focus into the integration of drones to assist in these areas. I’m glad that I didn’t have to go more than ten episodes to dive into this subsector of UAV work, as it is an area that I’ve been interested in for years now. Joel is originally from Canada and is now residing in Switzerland, with his work taking him all over the globe.
Some of the topics covered in this podcast episode:
- “Robotics for good” initiatives
- Flying labs, and empowering the locals
- UAVs and disaster response
- How drones are being used in the Amazon rainforest
- Challenges and wins in this subsector
