Creating a future where local communities

can use robotics for social good

We are a Peruvian innovation lab that focuses on solving local challenges and needs through

the use of appropriate robotics & AI technologies.

What we do

We act as an expert’s center to develop local capacity for the use of appropriate robotics solutions in humanitarian, development, health and environmental efforts in Peru.

We provide field testing capabilities, specifically around cargo delivery, and help incubate new local drone-based service providers. We foster local demand by working together with local, national and international organisations in conducting robotics-related projects.

As a non-profit organisation, we focus on projects that directly benefit human life and the surrounding natural environment.


Cargo Drone Deliveries in Amazon Rainforest

Cargo Drone Deliveries in Amazon Rainforest

We traveled to the rainforest to explore whether cargo drones (UAVs) could realistically be used to deliver essential medicines in a sustainable manner. The drones delivered life-saving antivenom as well as blood samples to remote villages 40 kilometers away in both day and night autonomous flights.

Disaster Recovery - Flooding

Disaster Recovery - Flooding

After the devastating floods in Peru in late 2016 and early 2017, Peru Flying Labs joined other partners to provide immediate information via drone on the flood-affected areas in Northern Peru. This helped search and rescue operations and provided 5cm orthorectified maps for damage assessment, and identification of stranded communities, safe areas for resettlement, and road access.

Zika Reduction - USAID Grant

Zika Reduction - USAID Grant

WeRobotics and FAO/IAEA were recently awarded a grant from USAID aimed at reducing Zika incidence. WeRobotics is currently developing a release mechanism for UAVs which will be used to release sterilized mosquitoes to reduce mosquito populations. Field-tests are planned to take place in Peru in 2017 with Peru Flying Labs.
