Autonomous Ariel Medical Assistance


The aim of the proposed project is to monitor the health conditions of registered cardiac patients and alert the quad copter with the location of the patient during critical conditions. Upon receiving the co-ordinates of the person, the quad copter autonomously flies to the destination through its GPS tracking system. A person having a stroke needs to be given the basic treatment immediately. It is very challenging for the ambulance services to provide immediate first aid to the people at severe conditions, due to increasing road traffic.
Quad copters are made up of light composite materials in order to increase manoeuvrability while flying and reduce weight. It can be equipped with a variety of additional equipment, including cameras, GPS guided missiles, Global Positioning Systems (GPS), navigation systems and sensors. Thus, this project is intended to make use of quad copters to overcome the issues faced by the ambulance services. The major objective of the project is to act as a proof of concept for small scale autonomous aerial medical assistances. To achieve this the drone is fitted with a GPS tracking system and is programmed to be able to fly from one location to another using GPS co-ordinates.
A GPS receiver on the central hub tells the drone where it currently is, by communicating with GPS satellites. To simplify the problem, the quadcopter is designed to fly at an altitude free of obstacles, thus avoiding the usage of sensors for detecting nearby objects. Autonomous aerial medical assistance can be availed by mostly all hospital in the cities to reduce sudden deaths due to lack of immediate treatment. The scope of autonomous quadcopter can be further increased in fields of agriculture, military services, delivery systems and disaster management.
