When manufacturing saves lives.

This is possibly the best use of a drone we have seen yet and this technology is available thanks to engineering students.

 

 

Each year nearly a million people in Europe suffer from a cardiac arrest. A mere eight percent survives due to slow response times of emergency services. The ambulance-drone is capable of saving lives with an integrated defibrillator. The goal is to improve existing emergency infrastructure with a network of drones. This new type of drones can go over 100 km/h and reaches its destination within one minute, which increases chance of survival from 8 percent to 80percent! This drone folds up and becomes a toolbox for all kind of emergency supplies. Future implementations will also serve other use cases such as drowning, diabetes, respiratory issues and traumas.
