FTMD / Transportation of Medicines with Drones
Drone delivery service to transport medicines.
Connect Robotics started to offer deliveries in the segment of health in 2017, with the beginning of partnership with a pharmacy and a hospital.
It developed a drone container that can track and maintain the internal temperature and humidity, to transport medicines in compliance with the industry best practices.
It received authorization to transport medicines from INFARMED (Portuguese agency that regulates medicines distribution) and already had approval to fly BVLOS (beyond visual line of sight) from ANAC (Portuguese Civil Aviation Authority).
The ongoing trials are promising, the medicines are delivered within 7 minutes at a lower cost than by courier.
