Open Tech for Global Reforestation

Open Tech for Global Reforestation

We are the Dronecoria team, and we believe technology can help to fight the climate crisis. One of the most effective ways to mitigate climate change and restore the health of our ecosystems is reforestation. To speed up this process we invented Dronecoria; an open source set of tools for large scale, low cost reforestation. And we just launched a Crowdfunding campaign to improve this objectives, here is the video: If we raise enough, we will do a pilot test to show the success rate of a reforestation of 30.000 trees in Spain. Our goal is also to give this drones for free to different environmental organizations around the world: in Australia, Thailand, Brazil, Paraguay, Kenya and Madagascar, to scale up large scale reforestation with drones, and build a community that uses this open technology. We use Pixhawk 4 as flightboard with Ardupilot/PX4, using the trigger camera settings to open the seed spreading mechanism. Actually it’s a drone designed to have a 8 liters water bottle in the middle as a seed deposit. Is laser-cutted in 5mm plywood, because is cheap, lightweight and easy to replicate, you can check their technical caracteristics. We are evolving this drone to make it smaller with some motors looking up and others looking down, in order to make easy the transportation by car and airplane. This is the design of Dronecoria V7 that we are creating with the crowdfunding, is smaller and lighter, and has some improvements too, like a lower center of gravity. With version 6
