Using the latest artificial intelligence and patented drone technology - developed by Norwegian firm, Birdview AS, and adapted to Portuguese conditions - the PELADRONE project aims to implement a drone-based reconnaissance solution for Portuguese SME fisheries to more sustainably and efficiently locate, track, and catch pelagic fish.
The PELADRONE Project is part of the Peniche Ocean Watch Initiative led by Ocean Tech Hub LDA (OCT) in Peniche, Portugal. PELADRONE is a collaboration among Ocean Tech Hub LDA, the local fishing community in Peniche, the Norwegian high-tech companies Birdview AS and Borgen Eckey AS, and its International Advisory and Research Board with expert practitioners and researchers from Portugal, Norway, and Sweden.
PELADRONE is co-funded by EEA and Norway Grants and is an 18-month project running from December 2020 to June 2022. To learn more, click on the Read More button below or watch our video on vimeo.
