Flying Robots Deliver Aid To Remote Communities Matternet has designed a network of digitally connected bays and Hoverbots to create a transportation chain to deliver on demand medicines to isolated communities. Patients can text during emergencies to signal and request medicine to a patient in need. A network of hoverbots, that can carry a 2 kilo payload up to 10 kilometers, fly between free standing hubs that link the short range trips in order to cover entire countries.
