Students of MVJ College of Engineering developing intelligent hybrid Unmanned Areal Vehicles
The students of MVJ College of Engineering have envisaged an intelligent high-speed hybrid unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that will deliver intensive medical aid and emergency medical services to disaster affected places.

This path breaking project aims to design and develop an aircraft that is capable of vertical take-off and landing and can hover over constrained spaces, with slow and precise movements.

The UAV is envisioned to carry automated external defibrillators, in addition to automated blood pressure apparatus and other emergency medical equipment. The aircraft will support Type 2 autonomy and will be equipped for real-time data transmission Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) and terrain-following in GPS-denied environments.

Recently, the students of the college gained hands-on experience in research and engineering through a committed and innovative project in the field of medical science.

Intelligent hybrid aerial systems for intensive medical response and delivery of crucial medical aid in disaster regions was a successful project innovation by Jervis Anthony Saldanha - 1MJ13AE036 (IV year, AE department) and Joshi Goutham Sharma - 1MJ13EC062 (IV year, AE department).

The key areas of public health and medical preparedness include medical surge, population protection, communication infrastructure, and emergency evacuation. Intensive and immediate medical response to cardiovascular emergency cases and the availability of green corridors at that location are critical parts of emergency medical services.

But conventional ambulances are restrained by the constraints of traffic congestion and distance to the patient's location. The average time within which ALS (advance life support) intervention has to be administered to the patient is 8 minutes. In such a scenario, where one cannot afford to lose time, aerial systems can be of huge help, saving precious time and lives too.
