Navigating an unmanned mini aeroplane to deliver defibrillatorsBy Ambulance Drone
Drones for Good started in June 2014 to explore future possibilities with drones using technology delivered on an open platform. It is a two-part invention challenge pitting dozens of entrants' drone-related concepts against tests of viability, effectiveness, and how much they can help the planet.
One of its recent developments is the Ambulance-Drone, a high-speed drone network that delivers emergency supplies to any location within minutes. Graduate student Alec Momont of TU Delft has designed this unmanned, autonomously navigating mini aeroplane that can quickly deliver a defibrillator to where it is needed. A network of such drones could significantly increase the chance of survival following a cardiac arrest: from 8% to 80%.
