Since the outbreak of the pandemic in 2019, a number of drone services arose and provided logistic support for people who lived in the epidemic areas. Among them, there are disinfection spraying drones, drones with a loudspeaker onboard, and delivery drones as well.
Using unmanned equipment to ensure the operation of social life during the epidemic prevention and control period, assisting relevant departments to implement emergency measures, and accelerating the recovery of economic life with science and technology has become a hot topic in navigation this year, it also allows unmanned aerial vehicles to enter the vision of the masses.
In this anti-epidemic battle, unmanned aerial vehicles appeared at high-speed intersections, rural villages, urban buildings, field farmland, hospital factories and other scenes, playing an important role in the anti-epidemic front line. During the outbreak in Wuhan, a courier unmanned aerial vehicle operated for 32 days, flying more than 3,000 times, with a flight mileage of nearly 13000 kilometers, transporting more than 11 tons of materials, including protective clothing, gloves, food, drugs, etc. According to reports, the unmanned aerial vehicles involved in material delivery are designed based on its 64.2-liter super-large warehouse, which can carry 10kg load for more than 20 minutes, with a range of 18 kilometers and a maximum wind resistance of 7 to 8 levels, the highest operating altitude is 4800 meters. In fact, in order to improve distribution efficiency and reduce personnel contact, many express delivery companies sent innovative equipment such as unmanned aerial vehicles and unmanned vehicles during the epidemic prevention and control period to improve the epidemic prevention and control level.
