Nigerian Robotics Engineer invents CET drone to detect kidnappers, terrorists’ hideouts


A Nigerian Robotic Engineer, Dr Olusola Ayoola has invented a Carbon Emission Tracker (CET) drone that is able to carry out aerial surveillance to detect criminal hideouts within caves and forest areas.

In an interview with, Dr Ayoola, founder of Robotic and Artificial Intelligence Nigeria (RAIN), an indigenous AI firm based in Ibadan, Oyo State, revealed the drone surveillance is capable to fish out criminal elements hiding in caves and forest areas due to the CET in it.

He said “We discovered the Carbon Emission Detection Based Aerial Surveillance which allows for a drone to sniff out hideouts through the carbon their activities emit. As long as human life exists in a forested location, there must be carbon emission, be it under a cave, under a canopy or inside a bunker.

“This novel solution comes with a barrage of many other possibilities and insight into how we can bring back security to our dear Nation and other nations in Africa. We cannot overemphasize the role of geospatial intelligence. So, wherever government cannot be physically present, the government’s intelligence must always be.

“With this new technology, we can quickly scan the entirety of our forests and games reserves to generate a real map of which spots of these hitherto assumed uninhabited forests have suddenly spiked up in human activities.

“If this is an indication of a criminal enclave rapidly developing across the country, then it helps us nip the growth in the bud before it becomes another combative force’’, he explained.
