We wish everyone a happy summer and look forward to a fall filled with exciting drone projects! GLOBHE will keep working in the humanitarian drone corridor in Malawi, kick off a drone exhibition at our Urban Drone Lab in Stockholm, and start a new project in California. Stay tuned for details!
The humanitarian drone corridor in Malawi has been launched and GLOBHE succesfully demonstrated medical cargo delivery via drones in collaboration with HemoCue, and drones for wifi connectivity, mapping and AI in collaboration with IBM. GLOBHE looks forward to develop the partnerships and possibilities further during the upcoming months.

GLOBHE is in Malawi to fly drones to spread wifi connectivity, test drones + AI to act as early warning systems for flooding and wildfires, and transport medical cargo by drones in the newly established humanitarian drone corridor run by the Malawi Government and UNICEF. GLOBHE is honoured to be a part of this groundbreaking development!
GLOBHE in collaboration with IBM will be testing drones for connectivity, data transfer and early warning systems, as part of the UNICEF drone project in Malawi and at the Urban ICT Arena in Stockholm.
Drones have the potential to act as Wi-Fi hot spots and help spread network coverage to improve communication and data transfer in areas where power lines or cellular towers may not be working properly. GLOBHE and IBM will connect drones to the IBM Bluemix Platform, including Watson, IBM’s supercomputer that combines artificial intelligence (AI) and sophisticated analytical software for optimal performance as a “question answering” machine. Together GLOBHE and IBM will teach Watson how to recognise flooding and drought from near-real-time drone images to serve as early warning systems.
As previously announced, GLOBHE will also be collaborating with HemoCue in Malawi, to speed up diagnostic services to last mile areas by using drones for medical cargo delivery including point of care testing devices and supplies. GLOBHE will be using drones from four of our drone partners; DJI, Ucandrone, Skarl and ALTI.
We’re kicking off our first activity with IBM in our newly established Urban Drone Lab @ the Urban ICT Arena in Stockholm. The event is taking place on June 12th @ 12 pm. Email email@example.com for more information & to sign up!
