Drones against sharks: Tracking UAV used on California beach
Lifeguards on Surfside Beach in California are sending out new miniature drones to detect sharks. If the sharks show aggressive behavior, they will close the beaches.
The drone allows lifeguards to get a bird’s eye view in real time without so much as putting a toe in the water.
On Monday the drone recorded a juvenile great white in waist-high water, although thankfully there were no swimmers at the time.
