A group of engineering students from Chennai's St Peters Institute of Higher Education and Research have designed a drone that can carry a medical first-aid box to an accident spot.
In metropolitan cities, heavy traffic is a major obstacle to swift movement of ambulances. And in rural areas, bad roads make it even worse.
The drone, which can move at a speed of up to 70kmph, works on GPS and can carry up to eight kg of first-aid material. Although the device's current radius is 3 km, the students are working on making the model capable of travelling even longer distances.
The device also comes with an interactive display, which suggests medicines for different kinds of injuries
