DATE:  Tuesday May 05, 2015   ABSTRACT : 

A billion people in the world lack access to all-season roads. Could the structure of the internet provide a model for how to reach them? Andreas Raptopoulos of Matternet thinks so. He introduces a new type of transportation system that uses electric autonomous flying machines to deliver medicine, food, goods and supplies wherever they are needed.

Andreas Raptopoulos, Co-founder and CEO, Matternet

Mr. Andreas Raptopoulos is the founder and CEO of Matternet, launching a new paradigm for transportation using a network of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV). Matternet uses lightweight, electric UAVs capable of transporting 2kg packages between landing stations in automated micro-transportation networks. Matternet networks will be set up in places with poor road infrastructure in the developing world to enable the delivery of vaccines, medicine or diagnostics; in congested cities in the emerging and developed world for courier and small goods transportation; and in places affected by natural disasters for first response.
