The Ministry of Interior has launched an awareness campaign for the communities residing in Qatar using drones. Through these drones, that roam around the different areas of the country, awareness messages are broadcast through loudspeakers, about the need to adhere to safety measures to limit the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), which include staying at home and abiding by the law implemented during the virus outbreak in Qatar that prevents gatherings and prayers on the roofs of buildings and homes.
The awareness campaign that is carried out on these drones are being broadcast in English and a number of different of languages that include, but are not limited to Urdu, Hindi, Nepalese, Malayalam and Sri Lankan so people from different communities living in Qatar can understand the broadcasts.
See the video below to understand what we mean:
Based on a description by Built In;
"The term 'drone' usually refers to any unpiloted aircraft. Sometimes referred to as 'Unmanned Aerial Vehicles' (UAVs), these crafts can carry out an impressive range of tasks, ranging from military operations to package delivery. Drones can be as large as an aircraft or as small as the palm of your hand."
Drones are usually controlled using an app on your tablet or touchscreen computer, and some are controlled with a remote control that's similar to one designed for a video game console.
The drones used by the MOI are used to monitor different parts of Qatar and create awareness by broadcasting messages telling people to stay at home and follow social distancing and isolation protocols.
