Today I would like to present you probably the most valuable use for a drone. Is not a drone delivering pizza or an urgent package, but is an AMBULANCE. Here we can check out an example of how logistics is not just making our life easier but also saving them.
Taking into account that the five first minutes after a heart attack are the most critical, be capable to send help before this time is crucial.
With a maximum speed of 100Km/hour, integrating a defibrillator and using an on-board camera connected to a control room via a livestream webcam; an ambulance drone is able to get to the place where the victim is 10 times faster than a usual ambulance and give the first aid before the paramedical staff arrives. This new technology increases chance of survival from 8% to 80%!
