BLOOD DELIVERING BY DRONE

Drone make blood transports faster and safer

BLOOD BY DRONE - PILOT PROJECT

Blood transfusions save thousands of peoples life every day - often every minute counts. But what happens if the blood bank courier gets stuck in a traffic jam?

The Frankfurt-based Agaplesion Diakonie Kliniken and the Delbrück drone specialist Globe UAV are working together to come up with a solution to prevent future blood transports from arriving in the hospital too late. Blood-delivering by drone!

CROWDED STREETS - NO PROBLEM

Especially in rush hour blood transports are increasingly stuck in traffic jams. Traffic has increased dramatically in recent years, in Frankfurt by 17% in the past three years. The courier from the blood bank to the hospital needs in extreme cases up to 60 minutes, for a distance that can usually achieve in 15-20 minutes.

With the drone, the blood could reach the Bethanien Hospital in Bornheim directly from the blood bank in the Markus-Klinikum at up to 60 km/h in the future. 5.2 kilometers in maximum 10 minutes, no matter what the traffic conditions are, how the weather is and traffic jams around.
