DJI drones featured in Chinese first responders promo video
Guangzhou, China, is a sprawling port city 75 miles northwest of Hong Kong on the Pearl River, being a major port and transportation hub, and one of China’s three largest cities. The city has an urban population of 12 million people and a metropolitan population of almost 47 million people.
In a recent video using many nice aerial shots, the local Fire Department introduced their new boats, trucks, robots, and drones, including 50 DJI Inspire 2 drones and five custom unmanned aircraft performing a demonstration of lifebuoys drops.
Used with DJI remotes, DJI CrystalSky screens, DJI Zenmuse Z30 industrial zoom gimbals, and what looks to be range extenders on the remotes, the drones have custom-designed quadcopter-type bodies.
The custom rescue drones using DJI components are seemingly capable of supporting life-saving rescue operations in this densely-populated area organized around the Zhujiang River’s numerous arms.
In this show of force, the Fire Department also introduced motorbikes, large trailers, excavators, fire engines, tank fire trucks, large fireboats, remote-controlled water extinguisher robots, water rovers, and water scooters pulling people.
A video accompanies the presentation video with interviews of officers presenting all those new equipment and drones, but our team could not translate it yet. Please reach out to us if you have a translation of those subtitles.
