Abstract:The purpose of this thesis is to assess the overall readiness level (maturity) of drone usage for medical transport. Through use of a Quick Scan Tool, developed for the purpose of assessing readiness levels of drone technology, as well as secondary data analysis, a general view of the readiness level for this application field of drone usage in the Netherlands is formed. This thesis found that the technology has been validated in a lab environment. This means that the basic structure is there but that the technology should be further developed and tested in a medical transport environment. Both the technical and business dimensions should be further developed to include all aspects and a more coherent dimension. The legal dimension poses to be the biggest uncertainty, but notable effort is spend on complying with regulation in this field. The social and ethical dimensions are well underway to be developed for further steps.
