Submission + - OpenRelief, Building Open Technology UAVs for Disaster Relief Efforts (youtube.com)

stonemirror writes: "A new project, OpenRelief, is being announced at LinuxCon Japan 2012 in Yokohama this week. OpenRelief is using open source software and open hardware to build intelligent robot drones that can gather first-response data in disaster zones for relief workers. The drones are autopiloted, and use the OpenCV library to recognize people on the ground, roads, smoke, fire and other features."
