Abstract:
    Our idea is develop an easy to operate "unmanned aerial vehicle" that can carry supplies (fire extinguisher, medical supplies, water and edibles) worth a payload of 1.5-2kg to clamity struck areas (Floods, earthquake, fire break), thus excluding the need of human presence in danger zones.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    This drone can help save lives of not only the affected people but also the rescueing crew by supplying medicines, water or deploy fire extinguishers in areas struck by flood, earthquake or fire. In May, 2016, heavy rains blocked most of the roads in the northern areas claiming more than 200 lives.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   fire fighting department, medical relief camps, agriculture departments.
How will the solution works
    The drone will have a payload compartment or a claw like structure which would be operated by servos. This can carry a ball fire extinguisher, food, medicines,pesticides etc. The crew members would adjust the desired location in the incorporated GPS system, place the desired object in the compartment and send it to the calamity struck location which cannot be reached otherwise, thus saving time as well as lives.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Our idea is novel because most of the current day solutions for coping in emergency situations either are too big in scale, thus expensive and still require human presence. Ours is fully autonomous and will provide minimum human need to go to clamity struck areas and is easy to operate as well.
