Background/objectives: In the last decade Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have become a topic of interest for many researchers worldwide. The current response system for suspicious activities and accidents are not observed or measured in real time; therefore, the main objective of this article is to develop an efficient drone that is able to provide the desired responses and solutions instantly. Methods/statistical analysis: A lightweight and stiff-structured quadcopter is proposed with the help of Adriano-based circuits. Several sensors are enabled in this structure that help drones perform accurately and efficiently. A drone incorporating into its design such a structure will be of immense help in emergency situations, such as providing critical medicinal assistance or when there is a need for critical medicine. A camera and proper communication system is present that captures, transmits, and receives data or commands by the concerned authorities. The designed system can intelligently analyse the situation and convey the required information to the issued by concerned authorities who are remotely based. It has also other uses; for it has a loudspeaker built into it using which necessary announcements can be made in a loud and clear manner, in order to prevent chaos of any kind in an critical situation that needs immediate resolution, such as warning people in situations of natural calamities or disasters or in war zones. Findings: This project focuses on the controlled surveillance of the desired location and proper communication to the concern authorities with the information of the situation as well as the location using a drone that incorporates this new design. The video/image clips captured by the drone are connected to, and displayed through, a remote computer that is manned by the control authorities. This way, with the help of the computer, the data transmitted of the surveillance location are also saved immediately into the computer’s hard drive or other servers connected to the drone remotely. The designed UAV is either controlled by the human operators or travels automatically based on the electronic instructions and encoded, map patterns fed into the drone. Li-ion batteries are used in the drones that provide the required energy for the drone to function. This quadcopter can be deployed to survey locations where threat to human lives is perceived to be high. The said UAV can be utilised by several authorities for controlling or making an efficient response system that will function well in different situations such as riots, chaos, accidents, traffic jams, and so on. Improvements/application: The system presented here can indeed help with finding unusual objects, transporting essential items such as medicine, and so on. Apart from all of these advantages, it will enable the drone to perform what it is mainly intended for—to perform surveillance. Also, it is helpful to announcing necessary instructions in order to prevent the chaos.
