The MEDinTime Project 

Reliable and safe supply of medicines to regional clinics by means of automated UAS

Current challenges

  • Clinics are required to provide special emergency medications around the clock in the shortest possible time for emergency operations
  • Even the small clinics have to keep excess stocks of medicines because of the transport routes and the transport time in order to be secured for the “worst-case”
  • After the expiry of the storage period, many of these excess stocks are now disposed of


→ High-cost factor for the hospital operator and for the entire healthcare system

Project FreeRail - The problem we try to solve

The solution / MEDinTime

The UAS will be equipped with a removable smart transport box with integrated electronics that, among other things, implement tamper-proof electronic transport documentation and enable ongoing data exchange with the management software.

The challenges ahead

Autonomous flight over a long distance (up to approx. 100km)
BVLOS (Beyond Visual Line of Sight) flights require a high level of autonomy, safety and emergency procedures.

First-time transport of a very sensitive payload via UAS
Fabrication of an intelligent transport box that meets climatic and hygienic conditions.

Elaboration of a procedure for dynamic route selection for each flight
Factors such as local weather situation, avoidance of overflight of larger crowds/temporary obstacles (construction cranes, etc.), different day/night routes, the statistical distribution of overflights, etc. 

Our goals for MEDinTime


Significant cost reduction in drug stockpiling with higher availability at the same time


Rapid pharmaceutical supply for primary care clinics from the central pharmacy of a large hospital by means of automated operated UAS


Ensuring compensation for drug shortages at clinics

Long-range drones to deliver emergency medication to hospitals – Project MEDinTime

The "MEDinTime" project supported by the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure is testing the viability of the supply using unmanned aircraft systems in the Ingolstadt region.  The "MEDinTime" project is being funded by the Federal Ministry...
