The Ambulance Drone is a concept by Dutch industrial design student Alec Momont, developed for a Delft University of Technology thesis project, that aims to create a life-saving unmanned aerial vehicle with a defibrillator attached for cardiac emergencies. The concept would house all of the supplies necessary to assist a non-medical professional in keeping a victim alive until an emergency crew arrives.
ifesaving technologies such as an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), medication, Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) aids can be designed compact enough to be carried by a drone. For the Ambulance Drone, a new type of frame was developed that is a compact flying toolbox containing essential supplies for (lay-person) advanced life support.
