ABzero is an innovative spin-off of BioRobotica Institute of the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna and has created an intelligent capsule for the delivery by drone of blood, organs, medicine, swabs and other medical products. This innovative system provides medical staff to use technology in a simple and immediate way in compliance with regulations, ensuring the quality of the goods transported through automatic and safe delivery.

 

Our industrial design agency supported the innovative start-up in the definition and development of the capsule, including integration with electronics and drone. The consultancy went beyond the design because we also took care of creating prototypes for validation and flight tests. The design was conceived for a realization of the capsule in foam material that offers the advantages of having a robust structure but at the same time light and insulating!
