drone, road traffic monitoring, road rescue


The paper presents prospects and examples of drone ? Unmanned Aerial Vehicle use in road rescue. There was presented the Drone Road Rescue System, which would be created from combining drones used for road monitoring and traffic accident identification, drones for delivery of necessary equipment and drones for remote transportation of victims to the hospital. Based on the already existing solutions, the various components of the system are discussed.
