China to use Drones to hunt out cheating in University exams

In order to catch students who cheat on their national university entrance exams, the city of Luoyang in China has employed a six-propeller drone to combat increasingly sophisticated cheating methods (via Huffington Post).

Gone are the days of writing the answers on your arm; Chinese students have reportedly started using radio feeds of answers transmitted to them via small earphones, some so small they can only be removed by a magnet.The drone, operated using an app on a tablet, can fly 500 metres above the exam hall and scan the venue for radio signals.

Over 9 million Chinese students sat down for the notoriously difficult gaokao exams on April 24, which will determine where they go to university.

Some parents have even allegedly taken to paying up to several million yuan (1m yuan is around £106,000) to hire surrogate exam-takers to get their children into top universities.

Earlier this month, it was revealed that UK police will start using drones to fight crime, while Dubai will soon use them to catch litterbugs in action.
