To help remote communities get the COVID-19 supplies they need, students from Ryerson University’s Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (RUAV) team are leveraging their existing resources.

The RUAV team quickly adapted drone vehicle technology to design and create a long-range drone that can travel up to 200km and carry 15lbs of emergency supplies.

They plan to deliver test kits and medical necessities to communities in remote areas of Ontario to ensure vulnerable populations have access to essential supplies.
