Pakistani Students Develop Drone Ambulance for the Flood-Affected

Two students from Shah Abdul Latif University in Khairpur, Sumaya Bhutto and Tohftul-Nisa Mirani, have developed a drone ambulance model to help people affected by floods. The students, who are in their final year of Physics studies, showcased their prototype at the annual Science Expo. Their goal was to utilize drone technology to improve healthcare services.

The drone ambulance is designed to reach areas that are difficult for humans to access during floods. It can deliver essential medications and first aid to those stranded. Additionally, it can identify individuals in need of assistance. The drone is controlled remotely using a mobile phone or laptop. It has a powerful 1000 KV motor, allowing it to operate for 30-40 minutes at a speed of 70 meters per hour. The drone can carry a load of up to 30 kg and includes a built-in first aid box.

Sumaya Bhutto explained that the drone is referred to as an “air ambulance” because of its ability to provide aid. She also mentioned that by using stronger motors, the drone’s carrying capacity can be significantly increased.
