We are co-creating a global network of local knowledge hubs – “Flying Labs” – in low-income countries. The goal of our Flying Labs is to accelerate the positive impact of local aid, health, development and environmental projects. We do this by sustainably localizing appropriate robotics solutions, which means we train local partners on how to use robotics technology responsibly and effectively to accelerate and scale social good solutions. Flying Labs also expand local markets by creating new jobs and businesses that offer robotics as a service.
Two Models to Build our Network
Regional Flying Labs
To support the setup of our Flying Labs network, we take advantage of our tested and validated 4-Phase Framework. This institutional framework serves to sustainably localize emerging technologies. It guides our local capacity building activities in a structured and scalable manner. Through this framework, Flying Labs can quickly deploy aerial, marine and terrestrial robotics for a range of local applications across a range of different sectors.
