Now, self-flying drone to quickly deliver food, medicine
Scientists have developed an autonomous drone that uses cutting-edge technology to quickly deliver parcels such as letters, medicine, first-aid supplies and food weighing up to 500 grammes. The device will never get stuck in traffic, it is programmed to avoid obstacles, and it can reach destinations on steep or uneven terrain, researchers said. Its protective cage and foldable design mean that it can be carried around in a backpack and used in total safety.
The drone, developed by scientists at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne in Switzerland, is equipped with several innovations that make it particularly safe, autonomous and easy to transport. The unique idea here is that the drone becomes the package that wraps around the cargo before flight, just like a mail package, researchers said.
