Interesting and inspiring read from Dezeen:

Foster + Partners are working with technology company Afrotech on the Droneport project, which will see its pilot scheme completed in Rwanda by 2020.

The project aims to offer an “affordable alternative that can complement road-based deliveries” of medical equipment within the mountainous country by using drones.

The Droneport will operate two parallel networks: the Redline using smaller drones to deliver medical and emergency supplies weighing up to 10 kilograms and a commercial network called the Blueline transporting equipment, electronics and e-commerce items weighing up to 100 kilograms.
