Flew from Flewup

Futuristic learning and education wonders .

Flewro

Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of man's desire to understand.Flewro is one such wonder coming soon from flewup.

The term Flewro Stands for Flying Electronic Wonder Robots.Flewro will be a Wireless Infrared IR Flying Robot Robocopter RC Radio Remote Control iPhone iPad iPod Android Tablet Smartphone Controlled Gyroscopic Stability Controled Device.which can even pluck the coconut from coconut tree.And it can be used for 18 different purposes You can fly the device as well as control its camera from your smartphone (connected via Wi-Fi) and receive live images, which can be stored directly on your smartphone.

The drone can fly to the top of trees which are up to 200 metres and pluck the fruit. This drone can be controlled with mobile app. Camera attached to the drone will stream live visuals to the mobile app using Wi-Fi. The app is capable of recording the camera output shown on the screen to the mobiles memory. The drone can automatically stabilize its flight even during heavy wind with the help of the drone’s in built gyroscope and GPS.

Once the drone (FLEWRO) reaches the top tree, the robotic arms starts working.  One of the robotic arm tests whether the nut is ripe or not. When the test confirms that the coconut (or any other fruit) is ripe, it notifies the user through the mobile app. The users have option to confirm to pluck or not. When the confirmation to pluck is received from the user, the drone with its secondary arm fitted with sharp razors pluck the fruit. This process is continued until the drone receives order to come back home.

The man behind the robotic quadcopter drone FLEWRO
Aliriza Abdul Gaffoor is the person behind this innovative product called FLEWRO.  He was lead to the making of this drone to pluck coconut, due to the unavailability for workers to pluck coconut in his native place – Kannur, Kerala, India. His thought was inspired by the remote controlled toy drones available in market. He had this idea in his mind for past two years, now it is going to be launched with the help of Startup village, Kerala.

Aliriza Abdul Gaffoor has formed a company named Flewup Technologies for further development of the robotic drone. Now about 230 engineers are working on this project. CafIT – Calicut is also helping Abdul Gaffoor to complete his dream project. Three major IT companies has already shown interest in FLEWRO technology. It is expected to be launched in market within next 3 years, in a price range which can be afforded by common men.

The future of the robotic quadcopter drone FLEWRO
The drone will be featured with voice based control system soon. This drone can also be used to pluck dates from date palms in middle-east countries. Other than plucking coconut or other fruits from trees, FLEWRO can perform 18 other functions like handling tasks to maintain air conditioners, painting, electrical works etc…of  high rise buildings.
