Emergency Response Drone Has a Defibrillator

(UT Delft)

Alec Momont, a recent engineering graduate at the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, developed this brilliant use for aerial drones. He envisions it as an emergency response tool for cardiac arrest victims.

His custom-built prototype is very light and can fly about 62 miles per hour. Unlike a wheeled ambulance, it doesn't have to travel over roads. It can fly in a straight line toward its destination. This could greatly reduce response times.

The drone has a speaker, a microphone, and a camera. The operator can remotely guide it, give instructions to the people on the scene, and see what's going on. Once someone on-site has placed the electrodes on the victim, the operator can use them.
