Researchers from Germany’s Fraunhofer FKIE institute created an AI drone that can locate victims by the sound of their screams. Here’s all about the technology that can be a gamechanger in finding victims after a disaster.

According to studies, using drones for search and rescue operations after a disaster can help cover larger areas easily. it takes very little man force and search dogs. Recently, Macarena Varela displayed a prototype drone was at the annual conference of the Acoustic Society of America.
