Two Swiss Hospitals in Lugano Use Drones to Exchange Lab Samples
From pizza delivery to relief and rescue operations, drones have been helping us challenge traditional logistics for some time now. In the latest leap, autonomous drones are now being used to deliver laboratory samples between two hospitals in the Swiss city of Lugano near the Italian border. This is an initiative of The Swiss Post, in partnership with a California-based company called Matternet. They are working with two hospitals of the EOC hospital group on the trial.
How the Process Works
These drone deliveries are part of a pilot that started in mid-March; the trial was approved by the Swiss Aviation Authority.
