The conceptual 'Humla' forestry drone has been designed as a professional solution for forestry planners or groundskeepers to help them take a closer look around areas in a less time-consuming way. The drone features three hubless propellers that will allow for seamless flight and also allow it to avoid becoming caught in tree branches or harming small animals. Users can perform reconnaissance over large areas of land with minimal effort to mark borders, keep an eye on protected regions and much more.
The conceptual 'Humla' forestry drone is the design work of Anders Sandström and Engin Güzel of the Umeå Institute of Design and is the winner of the 2018 iF Design Talent Award. The unit can also be stored conveniently on the chest of the user between tasks for optimal portability.
