A drone is pictured flying over a police vehicle in Harbin, Northeast China’s Heilongjiang province. The city recently started to use drones to monitor outbreaks of forest fires, in a bid to prevent fires during the dry spring months. The drone uses a thermal imaging lens to detect areas of heat by comparing temperature differences across an area that it is monitoring. When a heat source causes a temperature difference with the surrounding environment, the drone can capture an image and transmit the results to an on-site monitoring center, enabling rapid response and management.
