🇬🇧 Drone Delivery of Defibrillators: Dronehub and Pentacomp in Poland

Dronehub and Pentacomp to perform drone delivery of defibrillators in Poland.

This autumn, the city of Sosnowiec in Southern Poland is launching a pilot program transporting AED (Automated External Defibrillators) via unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Developed in cooperation with the Metropolis GZM, the city of Sosnowiec, the Łukasiewicz – Institute of Aviation, and the companies Dronehub and Pentacomp, the project aims to gather experience from the use of drone technology in the implementation of tasks for the needs of local government. The plan will oversee over 100 flights, allowing the collection of data on the optimal parameters of flights and the processes of their implementation.

“The project to be implemented in Sosnowiec is another opportunity to confirm the appropriateness of the use of Dronehub drones and docking stations and Pentacomp flight management software,” explains Vadym Melnyk, founder and CEO of Dronehub. “Two of our docking stations will take part in the pilot, each equipped with a Cartesian mechanism, i.e. a robotic loader that will automatically pick up the defibrillator from the compartment in the docking station and place it in the drone. After the drone lands in the second docking station, a similar mechanism located there will pick up the parcel from the drone and place it in a compartment at the destination station.” (…)
