Logistical delays put organ donation on hold. We Team Dronix ,developed a Semi Customised Octorang to deliver human organ and medical amenities during emergencies and tested inside campus.


The Purpose

An article appeared in The Times of India dated 27th October, 2016, which mentioned about ?Logistical delays put organ donation on hold?. This rekindled our desire as to how we could design and put to use drones for use of mankind. Our team ?Dronix? incubated in our campus sought to address the issue of delayed delivery of human organ as well as medical amenities during emergencies. As of now this issue has not been sorted out in India and traditional methods like delivery through vehicles have been done during emergencies which have time and again proven to be inefficient.

The Technology

We developed our own applications under the name of ?DRONIX?. On receiving a distress call from the victim/patient or from hospitals, our base station, after tracking down the location of the signal, sends out a multirotor to the precise place. Within a matter of minutes the payload is dropped off at the required location and the octorotor automatically returns back to its base. This empowers our country digitally in the field of electronics as well as technology. We aim is to create innovative projects to do something useful the society.

Additional Details

Making an efficient Multirotor costs around $7000 in the market but fortunately we managed to do the same within a budget of approximately $2000. Quality has always been a top priority for us. Even though there are cheaper Drones in the market, nearly 98% of them cannot be used for delivery due to a lower weight lifting capacity. On the other hand, our Multirotor can lift up to a whopping 10 Kg and also runs with a battery time of around 20 minutes approximately.
