Abstract

In this project, the use of current drone technologies is reviewed, optimized, and used to demonstrate the feasibility of medical supply delivery to remote areas of China via UAVs. The design of a biocompatible payload and a modified drone is to accomplish medical supply delivery. The payload and UAV arm mechanism must consider the safety of medical supplies and blood biocompatibility throughout the delivery. This paper discusses the engineering design and experimental results of the final prototype.
