I am student working with a group that is looking into developing ambulance drones similar to the one at TU Delft. Here is an article if you are not familiar with it. We hope these drones will improve the survival rate of cardiac arrest victims. We are trying to figure out what kind of parts we would need to build a drone similar to that in the article and develop a price estimate of how much it would cost.
Unfortunately none of us know much about drones or even where to begin researching a drone of this quality. I understand that this community is focused on DIY budget drones, but I was hoping that some community members here might have knowledge about higher quality drones or know where I can find such information.
The drone we are looking into should travel be able to travel at 100 km/hr, have a connectivity range of at least 20-25 km, and have a battery that lasts for around an hour. It needs to be able to function as an AED as well. Does anyone have any ideas as to how much a drone of this quality would cost?
On a different note, does anyone have any insight as to what the best autopilot system for this application would be? It would have to be very reliable.
I appreciate any help that anyone can provide.
