At 11:10 on February 12, a drone landed at Wuhan Jinyintan Hospital and delivered 3.3 kilograms of medical epidemic prevention materials to medical staff. The entire delivery process took only 7 minutes.
On-site staff introduced that three drones were arranged to carry out anti-epidemic materials transportation and delivery business on that day. The drones were transported 18 times (round trip), with a total load of 70kg and a number of 27 pieces. The materials transported were all emergency medical materials.
It is understood that the UAV mission load can reach 10 kg and the range can reach 18 km. The addition of drone distribution can effectively eliminate the impact of road restrictions and community closures on one hand, reduce the delivery time, and deliver emergency supplies to designated locations in the shortest time; on the other hand, drone distribution can be effectively avoided Face-to-face contact between delivery personnel and medical personnel to avoid cross-infection.
