New drone type transports life-saving defibrillator

Community, Künstliche Intelligenz, Pressemitteilung der TUM |

For cardiac arrest victims, minutes can mean the difference between life and death. It’s vital that medical emergency response teams get to them quickly, but in more remote, rural areas this can sometimes be difficult. “HORYZN” is an initiative of students of the Institute of Flight System Dynamics, chaired by Prof. Florian Holzapfel, at TUM and has developed a remote-controlled, AI-supported rescue drone with a defibrillator on board for just such emergencies
