Abstract
Drones are autonomous vehicles that have been beneficial to humans since their creation. Drones are considered to carry out activities efficiently. In the last ten years, drones are becoming a common sight. Filming for TV and Movies, surveillance, delivery, and hobby flight are some tasks which make use of drones. The potential of drones is slowly, but surely being uncovered and yet we`ve just scratched the surface. Companies like Amazon use drones to make deliveries more efficient. Drones can make standard services efficient, like in healthcare, public security, etc. This project utilizes drones for deploying emergency healthcare and uses technologies like GPS location, mobile applications, web services, drones, and ground control stations. The system is designed to aid first responders to an incident or injured people. This project also introduces a drone policy to govern the use of drones at Ashesi University.
