Project Description:
Imagine a hospital in a remote area where road access is limited, and health care providers require medical supplies in the middle of a hurricane that can last days. Traditional drones perform poorly in turbulent environments, but is it possible to develop a swarm of flying blimps that can transport supplies in turbulent environments?
