Many charity organizations of today struggle with innovation. There may be a lack of technological knowledge in-house, while external technology is expensive. As a result, they often keep using old-fashioned methods to fulfill their social missions. This may involve time-consuming transportation of goods in remote areas, such as medicine delivery for refugees.
What if we can make such activities faster and cheaper with high-tech solutions? Hack The Planet created GroundHawQ: a low-cost 3D-printed, self driving robotic platform that can be used in a broad range of activities, depending on the additional technologies that can be installed on the vehicle – from medicine kits to thermal cameras.
GroundHawQ won The Hague Innovators 2017, the innovation award organized by ImpactCity! With the prize of €30.000,-, we will finalize our prototype and make it ready to adjust to our target market’s needs – whether it be anti-poaching sensors or medical aid.
