AFR Drone / Autonomous drone for First Responders

AFR Drone
AFR Drone

In an emergency situation the first few minutes can be crucial, but the first responders rushing to the scene communicate through radio and have no direct knowledge of the scene - only relying on the emergency call which is often filled with misinformation. This project aims to place autonomous drones throughout the city that can be deployed within seconds from the call center, cutting arrival times by 50-70%. A live video feed of the situation is then sent to all relevant personnel, providing untainted information quickly and continously, allowing the first responders to adapt.
