From Our Undergraduate Thesis
Inspired by the Asian Glossy Starling bird or Galansiyang in the local language, our team's research focused on biomimicry using drone technology to solve deforestation.
Our ideas were turned into reality with the help of faculty and advisers from the Computer Applications Department of the College of Computer Studies in Mindanao State University - Iligan Institute of Technology (MSU-IIT), Philippines.
