The Drones are proven to be the life saver in remote areas. One such Drone Planemaker startup has bagged the funding from Big Names like Paul Allen, Jerry Yang, and others. The Zipline, which is SanFransisco based startup, bagged nearly $18 million from the Microsoft co-Founder Palu Allen and Yahoo Co-Founder Jerry Yang. There are other investors also who put some money in this startup. The money raised from investors is to be used in the production of Drones and distribution of goods in remote areas.
The Zipline developed a Plane-like Drone, which will help the residents of Rural areas in Africa. The Zipline Drone can fly in remote locations and drop the Medicines and other necessary goods for the people of Africa. The CEO of Zipline, Rinaudo, who was a Professional Rock Climber before starting this startup said that “delivering the Medicines in the remote areas is a global challenge.”
The Zipline planes are drones, which look like the small airplanes. Unlike drones, the Zipline planes can drop the light weight payloads from low altitude on target locations. Currently, Zipline decided to start the delivery of Blood and other medical supplements in the African nation of Rwanda. The Rural Clinics will get the deliveries of Blood and medical supplements via Zipline planes-cum-drones.
