Drone tech and analytics company, IG Drones has won a contract to survey Uttarakhand Metro Rail Project to build a PRT corridor, under the Neo Metro System, the country’s first such Project.  

The Neo-Metro Project aims to construct state-of-the-art rapid transit systems in Dehradun, Haridwar, and Rishikesh within the next four years to ease traffic congestion. The Personalised Rapid Transit Corridor or PRT is being developed under the Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS) that will link three cities– Haridwar, Rishikesh, and Dehradun.  

An initiative by the Government of Uttarakhand, the PRT Corridor project is anticipated to be completed by 2024 and seeks to offer world-class and state-of-the-art commuting. IG Drones will help prepare a Detailed Project Report (DPR) by surveying the project through high-tech drones.  

The company will employ domestically developed drones to conduct regular overviews of the ongoing work progress on the ground.   

The drones are equipped with advanced sensors capable of capturing high-resolution images, videos, and additional data from the ground. This collected data is then processed through IG One, their proprietary software, which offers in-depth technical insights and analytics, the company said in a release.  

Expressing delight at having won the contract, Bodhisattwa Sanghapriya, founder and CEO of IG Drones said, “Surveying a metro rail project in such tough terrain is a challenging task in itself but we have the latest drone technology and software to monitor such projects in detail. Leveraging sophisticated drone technology, our company will furnish comprehensive technical insights and analytics to government officials and regulatory bodies, facilitating real-time project tracking and enhancing safety and security measures.”   

The company has launched India's first 5G Drone. These drones are equipped with advanced sensors and artificial intelligence functionalities, rendering them suitable for diverse applications, spanning from border surveillance to use in medical and defense sectors.  

The company had also bagged the contract for Mumbai-Ahmedabad Bullet Train Project Surveying, earlier this year.
