The aim of this project is to use UAVs to support defibrillator delivery. We plan to interface with the local 911 services and to dispatch a UAV to deliver an automated external defibrillator.
The project is in collaboration with the South Bend Fire Department and Cardiac Science. It is undertaken by University of Notre Dame Computer Science and Engineering students Nathaniel Hanson and Zak Kousens.
You can view a video of the AED delivery prototype using a parachute drop and the software that supports dispatch of the AED here. View a second video, showing the current prototype that lowers the AED via a line here.
