CHENNAI: Anna University and its Centre for Aerospace Research (CASR) have played a crucial role in making the summit safer and secure. For, the Centre is helping the police department with its expertise in drone technology. CASR has done photogrammetric mapping of the entire stretch of road, on which the Chinese President will be travelling to reach Mahabalipuram. It has also developed a special app, which has been given to the police, to help them chalk out the security measures.      

As per the CASR officials, the app provides a complete aerial view of the entire stretch along with analytical information, which the police had specifically wanted to be included. “Police had asked for specific information, such as how much time it will take to travel from one point to another,” said an official of CASR. A total of 45 police personnel have been trained in drone handling.
Apart from the drones given to the cops, the CASR has four drones on standby.
