KHAIRPUR: The Department of Physics and Electronics at Shah Abdul Latif University Khairpur recently organized the highly anticipated Science Expo 2023, where students demonstrated their ingenuity through the presentation of 26 remarkable projects.
Among these, two final-year physics students, Samia Bhutto and Tohfat Nisa Mirani, showcased a groundbreaking model of an air ambulance and delivery drone.
According to the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the university, Altaf Abaro, the air ambulance drone project exhibited by Samia Bhutto and Tohfat Nisa Mirani aimed to leverage drone technology in the healthcare sector, specifically for aiding regions inaccessible to human intervention during emergencies such as floods.
Sumia Bhutto, one of the brilliant minds behind the air ambulance concept, emphasized that their objective was to enable the transmission of crucial information to remote areas by deploying these drones. Additionally, the air ambulance drones could deliver essential first aid to those in need.
The drone, equipped with a powerful 1000 KV motor, boasts a maximum flight speed of 70 meters per hour and can operate continuously for 30 to 40 minutes. Remarkably, it can support a weight of up to 30 kg and includes a specially designed first aid box integrated within its structure.
Samia Bhutto further explained that the name “Air Ambulance” was given to their creation due to its primary purpose of delivering vital aid to affected individuals. She also suggested that by incorporating more robust drone motors, the air ambulance could potentially carry even heavier loads.
The innovative work of these two students not only highlights their exceptional abilities but also showcases the potential of drone technology in enhancing emergency response and healthcare services.
