AiMOUR tests drones in response to medical emergencies
European UAV research and innovation organization AiMOUR has launched a series of tests using drones – including an EHang air taxi – to substantiate the potential advantages of the craft in responding to life-threatening medical emergencies.
AiMOUR has an established record within European efforts to prepare governments and societies for the arrival of UAV services, including introduction of passenger-carrying urban air mobility craft. The research organization’s specialty is deployment of new aerial technologies in reacting to urgent situations. As part of that, AiMOUR has experimented with smaller drones to rush supplies to responders in medical emergencies, and is now taking that exploration a step further by testing an EHang EH216 air taxi to transport EMS personnel.
