e-Juba Delivers in Africa

The south African National Health Laboratory Service is testing the e-Juba, a prototype UAV that can be used for specimen transport or drop in rural areas of the country. The device is made up of sensors and gyroscopes and can be programmed with specific routes. The largest can carry 12 jars for a load of up to 500g as far as 40km. So far, two have been tested with positive results. The NHLS feels that the aircrafts could also carry medicine, anti venom, or blood.
