What if aid could reach affected communities more quickly? What if the health needs of remote communities could be met more rapidly? What if the Sustainable Development Goals could be achieved faster? We believe that emerging technologies can significantly accelerate and scale the positive impact of aid, health, development and environmental efforts.
Drones are robots that fly, drive or swim. They can acquire better data more quickly and deliver cargo more rapidly. Breakthroughs in Artificial Intelligence enable drones to automatically collect and analyze data that can inform better decisions. Robotics and AI are radically transforming major industries in the world’s richest countries. Our mission is to sustainably localize appropriate robotics solutions in low-income countries to accelerate the positive impact of aid, health, development and environmental efforts.
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.
Our Flying Labs network contributes to the following SDGs:
Through our sector-oriented programs and trainings, we create global solutions, coordination mechanisms and customized trainings for NGOs, government agencies, research institutes, local think thanks and universities. Discover our most recent projects and programs:
