Medical goods may be the gateway to conventional uav delivery.


Medical goods may be the gateway to conventional uav delivery.
The hq-40 uav, produced by Latitude engineering co., based in Tuscon, Arizona, can carry samples for medical testing in a refrigerated container.

Last fall, the hurricanes and tropical storms hit Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico, comfort, let people see unmanned aerial vehicle (uav) realize that some of their life saving potential.
In these disasters, unpiloted aircraft are in danger of destroying roads, Bridges and railways. They found the oil and gas leak. They examined thousands of damaged cell towers that could not be called for help. “Michael huerta, the former chief executive of the federal aviation administration, told the agency’s unmanned aircraft advisory board in November that unmanned aircraft became a text lifeline. ”
The use of unmanned aerial vehicle (uav) need special exemptions, the exemption from a set of known as the 107th part of the FAA rules, usually require small uav flying in 400 feet below, keep in the line of sight of the operator and avoid the densely populated area.
These regulations make it difficult for commercial drones to operate in the United States. But last October, the department of transportation took a big step: it invited state and local governments to test with universities and companies to speed up the integration of drones into national airspace. The federal aviation administration is reviewing 149 proposals and plans to choose between five and 10 by mid-may.
These proposals cover a wide range of applications. Many of these are related to health. “I believe that more than half of all applicants in their proposal provides some contents of medical support,” headquartered in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, aerospace consultant John Walker said, before he co-founded the FAA for 32 years. In 2006, Padina group co. LTD.
Mr Walker believes the public’s acceptance of early public delivery of drones will be around hospitals. Once drones can safely and reliably carry blood and medical supplies, this will pave the way for other types of drone deliveries. “There is a linear network of unmanned aircraft that can operate between hospitals… It can also be used by amazon and anyone else who can meet the requirements of the operation.
Several companies have contacted governments in developing countries to demand medical services in areas where rescue efforts are needed, roads are blocked and skies are congested.
The robots in late 2016, is located in the San Francisco bay area start-up Zipline set up distribution centers in Rwanda, as of last autumn, unmanned aircraft has created more than 1400 flights, carrying on demand supply of blood and emergency supplies more than 62000 miles. This year, the company will expand its medical delivery business by launching a second base in Rwanda and launching new services in its larger neighbour Tanzania.
Last October, Swiss post launched a medical transportation network in lugano, Switzerland, using a drone made by Matternet, another bay area company. So far, the drone has been delivered 350 times, about five to 15 times a day. Other groups have also taken the aircraft to foreign countries to try out health-related deliveries, but the flights have not been sustained.
In the United States, these efforts face more serious obstacles, with regulations focusing on the safe integration of drones into already crowded national airspace. “We haven’t seen [FAA] interest in a one-off approach,” said Susan Roberts, co-founder of general electric’s AiRXOS. Co-founder of general electric’s AiRXOS, focused on drone infrastructure technology. “If a shipping company not again and again to expand, so for a shipping company, if can fly from two specific point, it’t do anyone any good.”
In addition to the delivery of blood and medical supplies, drones can also change another key component of health care – laboratory testing. Timely test results can help doctors diagnose infections and reduce prescription drug speculation. Some of these decisions have a life-or-death impact. For example, the newborn is yellowed by jaundice, because their bodies produce bilirubin, a by-product of the normal breakdown of red blood cells. But “very high levels of bilirubin may be toxic to infants,” said Dr. Geoff Baird, a clinical pathologist at the university of Washington in Seattle.
In millions of blood samples, urine specimens and his team process cotton swabs each year, mostly through cars to the central laboratory. “We have seven days a week,” baird said. “every day, on the highway in Washington state, we pass the pass through the mountains.” The university is also testing several clinics in suburban hospitals and rural communities in the SAN Juan islands, northwest of Washington. Taking laboratory samples from the islands to the Seattle hospital is required to take a bus, plane and ferry stations – about 100 miles of travel usually takes more than 24 hours, weekends or even longer.
Baird said, however, that a prototype of a drone on the SAN Juan islands could reach the main laboratory in Seattle within 90 minutes. That’s why universities are eager to bid for FAA programs.
Researchers at Johns Hopkins university designed a temperature-controlled container to transport specimens, just like these test tubes containing blood samples.

The proposed medical delivery is part of a larger application by the department of transportation, which includes other companies such as amazon and t-mobile. If selected, Mr. Baird says, SAN Juan’s efforts will be used in the development of drones at latitude engineering in toscone, ariz. Latitude enabled the Johns Hopkins university researchers to make remotely recorded military planes carrying frozen blood samples to 160 miles in a three-hour flight across the desert.
The north Carolina transportation department also applies to FAA plans to use drones for medical delivery. Zipline and Matternet are in the application and several other unpublished proposals. Matternet has also teamed up with palo alto to offer advice on delivering blood to Stanford university hospital. Reno, Nevada Flirtey unmanned aircraft manufacturers in the United States are focused on using its aircraft for last mile defibrillator transmission – the company thinks that the equipment could be saved each year hundreds of thousands of people’s life in the United States, by increasing survival, hospital cardiac arrest.
However, in the end, put forward the possibility or destruction of the proposal is unlikely to is specialized in the unmanned aircraft, but make sure that they can safely and commercial aircraft, helicopters, balloons, and any other things in the sky fly together infrastructure.
Drones under your tree can’t fly high before flying to the faa.

To this end, the FAA earlier in the week in Baltimore at an unmanned aerial vehicle (uav) seminar emphasizes it to “prevent the unmanned plane crash” “consciousness and avoid” technology and allowing for unmanned aerial vehicle (uav) for remote identification and tracking system of interest. GE’s project covers two areas. “No company is going to solve all the problems, and we are taking a holistic approach,” Mr. Roberts said. “We need help with medical delivery, we need to help the inspectors, we need to help those who have just taken pictures.”
UNICEF is working to foster this spirit of inclusiveness at a global level. Last summer, the United Nations children’s fund (UNICEF) partnered with local governments in Malawi, Africa, to conduct drone flight test missions for companies, universities and nonprofit organizations there.
Recently, the United Nations children’s fund invited the group to deliver the vaccine in south vanuatu, about 80 islands in eastern Australia. Chris faber, head of UNICEF’s venture capital division, says the corridor USES a barter system. “If you come here to take advantage of our time, create something that is open source and useful to others.”
