EHang’s autonomous aerial vehicle (AAV) have been used as first responder vehicles following the recent resurgence of the coronavirus in China’s Guangdong Province.

 

A flight operations team and multiple AAVs have been dispatched for Covid-19 relief and control efforts in Guangzhou City.

 

Starting from 4 June, EHang has successively deployed the passenger-grade AAV EHang 216, EHang 216L (logistics model), EHang Falcon B series and Falcon B (logistics) for epidemic prevention and control efforts.

 

With the technical advantages of autonomous flight as well as capabilities for rapid response and cluster management, the EHang 216 and EHang 216L AAVs built emergency air transportation routes across the Pearl River in Guangzhou, successfully completing multiple ‘contactless’ relief and support tasks in the quarantine and containment zones.

Tasks included aerial logistics, emergency transportation, aerial inspections and broadcasting, transporting necessary daily household supplies to residents in the quarantine zones, and implementing urban air mobility (UAM) systems in emergency transportation scenarios.

 

Ehang’s designated flight operations team will maintain its station near the quarantine and containment zones to continue with household and emergency supply air transport. The aim is to reduce risks of frontline staff contacting the virus, and further support the coronavirus control and prevention mission in Guangdong Province with improved efficiency.
