SOUTH BEND — Students at the University Notre Dame are thinking of a new way to save lives.
Two students came up with a drone defibrillator.
In order to improve response time on cardiac arrest victims, the drone would fly to victims in two to three minutes. That could triple the survival rate of cardiac arrest victims.
“A lot of it is just learning by doing. So doing a lot of research into the technology and developing the software through a process, and continuing to test a really robust product,” said Zachary Kousens, Notre Dame class of 2019.
The drone defibrillator or Delive is now being looked over by the FAA and the students hope to commercialize it by next year.
