In Russia, 70% of drinking water comes from the surface. Water pollution is a major issue in this country, with more than 10 million Russians currently lacking access to quality drinking water. Around 60% of the total reserves of drinking water do not meet sanitary standards. This fact favors the proliferation of health issues as only 8% of the wastewater is correctly treated before being returned to the waterways.

This session explores the Drone on the Volga project that measures water pollution in the Kuybyshev Reservoir, the largest water reservoir in Eurasia, located in the Volga river.  Through a combination of modern robotics, blockchain and IoT for environmental monitoring, see how they have built a base of continuous control of pollutants in water environments and how a matrix of data coming from many of these drones can feed AI systems to easily and quickly detect pollution sources.
