OBSERVATIONS

2.5 million people admitted to emergency rooms and 200,000 hospitalized due to vehicle crashes (6.2% of admissions, 1% of all hospitalized) Source

IMPACTS

Every vehicle becomes a potential ambulance.

  • Autonomous vehicles act as emergency vehicles transporting people to medical facilities
  • If an ambulance is required, travel time to the location where care is needed is coordinated with the other vehicles on the road to ensure transport is without delay.
  • Due to traffic congestion, ambulance response times are significantly reduced Source

SUPPORTING MATERIALS

  • Driverless Technology and the Ambulance of the Future. Source (July 2015)
