BEIJING – An anti-cheating drone has been installed to identify exam cheats in the China’s province Luoyang.
The city of Luoyang has decided to crack down on these would-be cheaters with a six-propeller drone as it is all-important university admissions test taken by more than 9 million students each year across the country and last year 79 students committed suicide as a result of the exam.
According to Chinese news reports, students are known to cheat on these university admissions exams by using a special pen that can take pictures of questions and transmit them to someone who relays the answers via ear phone.
Students taking the “gaokao” exam will be monitored by a drone that picks up radio signals and pinpoints the source. The drone can hover 500 meters above the test site and can detect radio signals up to a kilometer away.
Once it detects a suspicious signal, it transmits the location to tablets used by staff. The staff can control the drone via their tablets.
Those caught cheating face severe penalties and may be prosecuted and will be barred from taking the examination for three years.
