Drones For Humanity

Team Name: Drones For Humanity

IDEAS Project Pitch: Drones For Humanity aims to use a system of heavy-lifting, cost-effective, and rapidly-deployable drones for humanitarian aid logistics. Our system will integrate with the current aid delivery system involving military helicopters. For a fraction of the cost, our drones will autonomously deliver over a hundred times more aid per hour, to a thousand places at once, compared to a single military helicopter. These drones will be used by governmental relief organizations, saving both lives and cost. Our main focus is to pilot our project in Indonesia, with an invitation from the government, to test the feasibility of large-scale drone delivery. In addition to collecting data, we will be delivering food, water, and other aid supplies to remote villages in Indonesia.
