Drones have garnered a lot of negative attention due to their destructive capabilities and application, which were highlighted recently in John Oliver’s powerful piece on predator drones. Drones, however, also have the potential to revolutionize transportation, mail delivery, emergency health care, disaster relief.
Dutch student Alec Momont focused his Masters thesis research project on using drones for good. More specifically, he developed the Ambulance Drone that could deliver automated defibrillation to any patient in a 12 square kilometers (7.5 square miles) area within 1 minute, increasing survival rates to 80%.
The Ambulance Drone has a special type of frame that can carry essential supplies for life support that even a lay-person can use. In addition, the drone has communication capabilities that allow 112 operators to instruct first responders on how to deliver better first care. Currently, successful automated defibrillator usage by regular people is at 20%, but with personalized instructions it could be increased to 90%.
