so ladies and gentlemen thank you very much for the invitation it's a great pleasure to be here today
00:00:07
and to share a few insight about to expose thrown delivery project
00:00:12
uh my name is jenny commissioner i'm leading the autonomous a delivery department office with post
00:00:18
so we are taking care of self driving and self flying we hiked goals
00:00:24
anything to that all logistics future of tomorrow so we
00:00:28
are not speaking about that um solutions or
00:00:30
legit fix that are changing the world in a year on it or in two years
00:00:36
but do you really believe that in a long tour and within the next ten or fifteen years
00:00:41
autonomous solutions will completely change our society and how
00:00:46
our our logistics and our business works so
00:00:50
in the next twenty five minutes i would like to speak about the delivery drowns
00:00:55
we have already heard oh we initiated the first trials with self lying open
00:01:01
on those operating drones here in switzerland three and a half years ago
00:01:07
in the meantime we really had a huge progress and i
00:01:11
can already tell you that since october two thousand seventeen
00:01:15
the first time in history actually we are running a commercial
00:01:19
delivery service uh with drones in look on all
00:01:24
but step by step what have we down into gone or so about two years ago we got a
00:01:29
call from mister young morning he is the c. e. o. and director of the hospital group
00:01:35
uh in lieu gone off for people who are not from switzerland uh look on as a very
00:01:39
beautiful city into solvent part of switzerland and it
00:01:43
has to it for probably surprisingly uh
00:01:47
but it has the same population density as san
00:01:50
francisco and the population density is very important
00:01:55
if you are speaking about drones or if you aim to implement a drone delivery service
00:02:00
because the all sorties calculate the ground risk of a drone
00:02:05
in case of an accident by the population density
00:02:09
so the c. e. o. of the hospital group told us that
00:02:12
he had a problem yes to hospitals in the same city
00:02:17
he has to emergency rooms in every hospital obviously want and yes to block laughs all
00:02:24
soul in every hospital one plot laugh but in the smaller hospital emergency station is
00:02:30
opened twenty four hours per day um uh but the black lab is closed during
00:02:37
nighttime so it happened that the patient arrived at ten o'clock in the evening
00:02:43
and he was sick obviously yeah probably a heart attack the
00:02:47
doctor stated note so they took a blood sample
00:02:51
and they that then they had to transport the plot sample to the altar hospital two analysts it
00:02:57
but how to do the transportation of course three years together with there were
00:03:01
no drowns in look around no no efficient uh transportation method available so
00:03:08
what they they do well the numbers in the emergency room to work
00:03:12
based smart phone or his mobile phone and she called a taxi
00:03:17
at all after a waiting time of ten or even twenty minutes the
00:03:21
taxi driver arrived at the hospital he grabbed the plot sample he
00:03:26
drew drove through the whole city through the traffic jams to the altar
00:03:31
um hospital anti paroles the plot sample to the plot laugh
00:03:36
in average pace process through between thirty and forty five minutes
00:03:41
and it happened that it will be even longer for example thought that day night when people were
00:03:47
getting out they wanted to get home and every taxi was
00:03:50
busy so sometimes it to even more than one hour
00:03:54
it's clear when we're talking about patient we are talking about people
00:04:00
and if you have a non recognised heart attack or strike for example then every minute counts
00:04:07
and then it matters whether it takes an hour or forty five minutes or
00:04:12
thirty minutes on till your blood sample arrives at the block lap
00:04:17
so what's the what is the solution we implemented h. round delivery
00:04:22
service i've thrown that is actually connecting to to hospitals
00:04:27
so if the patient is arriving now go into emergency station you are still taking the plot
00:04:34
but you are no longer a appalling that taxi but you are just using
00:04:38
ourself lying prone to transport the plot sample from one hospital to the
00:04:43
altar hospital and by this way we were able to read use the average
00:04:48
transportation time from forty five minutes to only three or four minutes
00:04:55
so it's a prime saving of approximately ninety percent
00:05:01
you see the route ah that we are flying in look are no uh also but i
00:05:05
like diane no if the smaller hospital where the black lab is close during nighttime
00:05:10
and hospitality call if the main hospital it's actually the
00:05:15
route is is only one kilometre so it's quite
00:05:19
uh it's it's not very long but nevertheless it's it's in the middle of the city and so by car uh it
00:05:25
takes you normally between fifteen and twenty minutes only for the
00:05:28
for for driving from one hospital to the other
00:05:32
and it's obvious that by drone you can fly as the crowd us
00:05:36
and like that it only takes you three or four minutes
00:05:41
um we start it's the operation into gone or in march two thousand seventeen at the beginning it was just
00:05:47
a test we were not transporting any real plot samples
00:05:51
but only a blood vials that word containing water
00:05:55
but since october two thousand seventeen we are
00:05:57
operating a a fully reliable um
00:06:01
commercial service using our drones and we have been operating more than
00:06:07
five hundred deliveries i think it's now the number as already increase i
00:06:12
think we're talking now about six hundred or seven hundred transport patients
00:06:17
that have been concluded by joan i said that's that's round that we are using into gone or
00:06:25
i think it's important to understand that this is a fell flying drone because
00:06:30
every time when we have visitors on sports payoffs cross what'd i could fly the drone and we say
00:06:36
well uh that's quite hard because there's no remote control
00:06:40
because the whole flight is controlled by software
00:06:44
uh this drone is able to fly with the
00:06:46
speed of approximately seventy two kilometres per hour
00:06:51
we can't transport payload of torpedo ground with the
00:06:54
current version over a distance of twenty kilometres
00:06:59
of course uh we had to apply for an authorisation from the federal office of c. v. live yeah
00:07:05
asian that means if you just buy a traveller are you will not be allowed to fry
00:07:10
to fly autonomously you need a special authorisation and it was quite challenging to get
00:07:15
this authorisation on for example we had to prove that our drone is safe
00:07:21
that means given in case of a thunderstorm in case
00:07:25
of a technical problem in case of a collision
00:07:28
with a bird or whatever happens we have to prove that our drone is safe and it's
00:07:33
not just crashing and a potentially hating or ensuring someone
00:07:39
uh that is walking on the road or
00:07:41
on the street and so we have for example if the g. p. s. navigation system fails
00:07:47
we are using the russian navigation system polled slowness or in case that we
00:07:53
use the internet connectivity over forty then we can switch to satellite connection
00:07:59
or in case that our out a pilot faith then we have a second they re don't and
00:08:05
all the pilot that is included in the drone and into the absolute worst case or let's
00:08:11
assume that the farmer takes his rifle and it's trying to shoot down to drone then still we
00:08:17
have a parachute that is uh going to be deployed aunts the drone where land safely
00:08:23
in switzerland we have been or flying more than one thousand two hundred
00:08:28
thousand three hundred flights that we have never had an incident
00:08:32
of course before we started over our operation over the
00:08:36
city here in switzerland we have been testing
00:08:39
the drone for more than ten thousand kilometres uh
00:08:43
in a desert in uh the united states
00:08:48
i will now show you a short video that shows how it looks like
00:08:52
went to drone is flying in look are no i hope it's working
00:09:05
you receive the norse a recurring parcel landing pad
00:09:11
now grown arriving
00:09:15
part
00:09:18
but um takes off and turning
00:09:25
we have to live on it we only have patients ah what you are free
00:09:31
for example that mark that more harm that
00:09:49
oh we get often lost how was that possible uh because as i
00:09:56
mentioned we are uh uh not only flying drones or operating drones
00:10:00
but we are also testing for example self driving delivery robots that
00:10:05
are transporting drops from a pharmacy uh to the patient's home
00:10:09
or we're testing indoor robotic systems that
00:10:13
are automatically transporting food in hospitals
00:10:16
and stuff like that and we are actually very lucky that your forties and the government in
00:10:22
switzerland is very open minded for such innovation project when it started three years ago
00:10:28
um articles foreigner he's the responsible for or from the
00:10:32
federal office of civil allegation told us that it
00:10:36
will not be possible to get an authorisation to fly
00:10:40
over the city within the next five years
00:10:43
and actually now it's one year ago that we got exactly that authorisation
00:10:48
and if you wanna fly or operate autonomous drones in switzerland then you first have
00:10:53
to prove that you're you michael is safe it's actually a similar certification process
00:10:59
as then you won a a fly a chess now or or small aircraft
00:11:04
then of course you have to include and involve every party
00:11:10
that starts at they are rescue helicopter
00:11:12
association the canton governments to people
00:11:17
uh the neighbours there is really a bunch of people who
00:11:20
have to be involved when you wanna on when you wanna start or something like that but we were very very happy
00:11:26
ah that's people likes the project and i think that teach you know was quite used uh
00:11:32
that's whispers decided to implement the first use case in the south and part of
00:11:37
switzerland so are what are actually that benefits of the drone
00:11:42
well at the example when look gone now and
00:11:45
also the upcoming examples in bern answer lake show that
00:11:49
we can reduce the transportation time um bye
00:11:53
a he or even ninety percent we are no longer depending
00:12:00
all traffic if there are traffic jams if there are traffic lights
00:12:06
it it's not a problem that we have direct and of course also in direct cost
00:12:12
savings regarding the pros as you can imagine when we started into gone now
00:12:18
um before we use the drone the employee of the emergency station
00:12:22
to norse has to wait for ten or fifteen minutes
00:12:26
on till the taxi driver arrives and it's clear that you
00:12:30
have to pay a this time and it's quite expensive
00:12:33
and actually i mean the the to the nurses whiteboard is if you just
00:12:38
have to stand in front of the emergency station and light weight
00:12:41
for a taxi driver that's not why she's working in an emergency station
00:12:47
and of course there's also added value for example the drone is always available
00:12:52
whenever you wanna fly the drone is there you don't have to call a taxi
00:12:56
you don't have to wait for a career that with uh probably the
00:13:00
writing every hour the drone is always an available whenever you need it and
00:13:06
last but not least i think the trends saline solution is quite sustainable
00:13:12
you can imagine before we use to drone that was a taxi with the weight of thousand five
00:13:18
hundred kilograms transporting one single block of a vial
00:13:23
out with the weight of hundred grams
00:13:25
with the try once we have a drone with a weight of ten
00:13:28
kilogram that is transporting the same plot sample of onto the grounds
00:13:33
and we have finally less traffic in the thirty so on
00:13:39
what's next to what are we gonna do next
00:13:44
of course now we wanna leverage with on the scale of the applications of drones
00:13:50
oh so far we have more than twenty five projects here in switzerland going on
00:13:56
to get the uh with with many hospitals we pharmacies uh
00:14:01
with black labs and with all the customers and there
00:14:04
are also some request and some projects uh in europe
00:14:08
or european countries that we are going to implement
00:14:11
a two weeks ago we have announced a use case in cyrillic
00:14:15
uh that we are currently testing and also use case inborn where
00:14:20
we are connecting several hospitals um with the drone and all
00:14:24
with their we're also transporting plop vials block samples and drops a
00:14:31
style how does that look like for example in cyrillic
00:14:35
in sorry we have the situation that we have a whole spit all over here
00:14:40
and that we have a whole spittle or a plot laugh uh on the other side of the like
00:14:46
so far they have the problem typed by corey here it's
00:14:49
took about one hour to transport the plot samples and
00:14:54
a few days per year it was not even possible to transport of lot
00:14:58
samples because there are special events like um to street parade for example
00:15:05
or did not punch ethan and the small bridge over here was closed
00:15:10
that was pretty black pretty bad for the hospital patients and the plot lap of course because then they
00:15:16
had to drive around the whole city and sometimes it would even two two hours for the transport
00:15:23
now we are testing to drone that of course is taking the shortcuts the
00:15:29
drone flies directly over the lake and we can view read use the
00:15:35
transportation time from one hour to seven minutes and of course the drone
00:15:39
is also flying when the can often she's that is taking place
00:15:46
but of course that are that it's only the initial position that only how we're gonna start
00:15:52
we have different requests from all the costumes
00:15:56
that would like to have their locations
00:15:59
through the network here in sorry because you are really aiming
00:16:04
to build up drone delivery networks in all ordinary hours in switzerland so
00:16:10
that we can improve the efficiency of health care of magical logistics
00:16:17
and this will allow i think in in the short term it looks a little bit bizarre
00:16:22
uh probably probably are thinking well now we have two or three trends that
00:16:25
are flying around in switzerland why are you talking about the big thing
00:16:29
but just imagine what's gonna happen in five or six ear when dragons
00:16:34
have become a commodity and the drone delivery services that's the polished
00:16:39
because then the situation will be that's transportation
00:16:42
costs are extremely decreased compared to today
00:16:47
and then we will achieve a new level was centrally station
00:16:51
for example it makes no longer sense that every hospital have the plot lap or
00:16:56
that we store in every hospital and medical pro datsun or or or drops
00:17:01
for example because you can you can arrange a to centralise warehouse and
00:17:07
you can transport the older was medical supplies within a few
00:17:12
minutes through the whole city it so i just got the two
00:17:19
minute fine and actually i think it was the loft
00:17:22
slide so we're really aiming for saving life
00:17:26
with rounds by refusing transportation time
00:17:30
thank you very much for your attention and very open for questions
00:17:40
people who think your remote for your presentation
00:17:43
any question in your room number interest the new um i'd like to do rebounds on
00:17:50
your last commands uh about some towards the shin all dried up to for instance
00:17:57
how do you had a bad winter because that happens uh because you you
00:18:01
you have to have a plan b. do with the data to
00:18:05
it actually perfect question that's that's something that i forgot to tell
00:18:09
uh we are normally not talking about rounds we just go to
00:18:12
the customer we tell the customer well in ninety percent
00:18:15
of cases for example indigo no we'll we'll guarantee you that
00:18:19
the transportation time will only be five minutes or lower
00:18:23
and in the all the ten minutes it will take approximately thirty minutes
00:18:28
that's actually the backup solution that we're developing that means during heavy
00:18:32
rain for example uh during thunderstorms we're not able to fly
00:18:37
that's for sure at that can also be technical issues but
00:18:40
for the customer it doesn't matter because our software solution
00:18:44
is automatically organise thing a backup system a backup transportation
00:18:49
in case that the drone isn't able to fly
00:18:51
and so it doesn't matter whether it is bad that or not it's just
00:18:55
if i if there is bad weather uh on too many days
00:18:58
then of course then the service level that we are able to provide
00:19:02
will decrease okay one question we do what do you think
00:19:19
i and you pull call and who talk uh this is very interesting
00:19:27
to you can you explain a bit more about the business model
00:19:30
you how would not be disclosed one transaction and the second question knees
00:19:35
along really take if you a copy paste that's always location
00:19:40
yeah uh that are ready to question's actually so to the business model for
00:19:45
ross i mean we have now been operating deterrents for for a year
00:19:49
and it's quite hard to predict how reliable the system is gonna work in the future
00:19:53
also depending from weather conditions that are very different from the region in switzerland
00:19:58
for example into gone oh it's sunny every day so it's amazing for jones so we
00:20:02
have a bit late ability of the drone of ninety seven or ninety eight percent
00:20:07
and if you go for example to the mountains uh then the weather can change very quickly and that's why we go to
00:20:13
the customers and to tell the customers you will not pay
00:20:16
more for the same transportation solution as you pay today
00:20:21
so let's let's assume we have a customer in cyrillic and he's paying
00:20:25
for career or a taxi uh forty swiss francs for transport
00:20:29
uh then we telemarketer you can use to drown you will read user transportation time by eighty or ninety percent
00:20:36
but you will the maximum price will be the same price that you protect today
00:20:40
and normally um people are very open minded for that business model but then of course we have two
00:20:45
models we have paper flight models uh that makes sense
00:20:50
for for customers that only have a few
00:20:53
the uh flights per day and then we also have kind of a
00:20:56
flat rate model for example that the hospital group can say
00:20:59
okay i need three or four drones and then they are kind
00:21:04
of renting to drown and they are paying a monthly fee
00:21:08
um yeah but the whole basis not always there in their allotments because we learned with
00:21:12
we every week uh from the experiences that we gather from the flight
00:21:17
um but that's how we handle it today and the second question how long does it take a until uh we
00:21:24
can fly if i that's a very good question um in in the gone i think it to cause it
00:21:30
approximately eighteen month from the uh in this in this your budget station
00:21:35
uh of the pro checked on till uh the approval was issued
00:21:39
um but no the whole process has been accelerated but still
00:21:43
you have to expect something between six and twelve months
00:21:47
it also depends from the route for example in if you
00:21:50
wanna fly nearby to use eric airport virginia airport
00:21:54
then it's much more challenging than if you wanna fly in a rural area or or
00:21:59
somewhere in the mountains waited around trees can't erase this relatively low but i would
00:22:05
i would expect between six and nine holes okay maybe the last question as to whether
00:22:11
you can you speak to you uh your plans to increase the prelude saris
00:22:16
no doubt you're familiar with zip line do you was computer operates
00:22:20
you are one dollar similar piloted the raw yeah yeah we have also spoken
00:22:25
uh to sit line and many other manufactures a on the whole world
00:22:30
uh the problem is that you have some physical restraint restrictions let's assume we wanna build
00:22:35
the throne that is able to take a payload of ten kilograms that's feasible it's
00:22:39
not a discussion it's not a problem part you increase the risk because if you
00:22:45
have a drone that uh with the weight of twenty kilograms and it crashes
00:22:49
then the the ground race gets much increased compared to the drone that you're having today
00:22:54
and the second thing is um the the higher to payload at the hyatt arrange that
00:23:00
you wanted chief the larger to drone and our main problem and that's probably
00:23:05
surprise thing is not regulation it's not technology
00:23:09
it's really about finding appropriate landing spots
00:23:13
at the customer sites and how to integrate that drones into the existing process
00:23:19
but yeah we are we're developing together if a company from the state a long distance
00:23:24
a drone and that drone will also be able to transport payloads up to five kilograms
00:23:30
but but that's also reason for why we have on the to strong focus on on health care
00:23:37
uh because i what they're normally the payloads are very urgent or to send things are very urgent but also
00:23:43
very lightweight uh and that's that's why it fits quite well uh with the drone that we're currently using
00:23:51
okay thank you very much mister mister
