Researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) are building a “Personal Rescue System”—or an autonomous drone ambulance—intended to change the future of emergency medical response. The rescue drone will airlift injured or trapped victims from hard to reach areas and disaster zones. During the drone flight, the victim’s vital signs would be monitored by sensors built into the drone. The drone will be the size of a small car and piloted entirely by an artificial intelligence system. Caltech says that its “Personal Rescue System” drone will be ready within five years.
