Emergency Infrastructure Hub
Integrating vertical and horizontal mobility

Headquarters of 4LifeLAB, under the concept of emergency infrastructure hubs in centralized healthcare facilities (e.g. hospitals).
Early adoption of Urban Air Mobility, complimenting concepts for decentralized and remote healthcare and emergency response, based on “health-hubs” that set mobile bases for a network of small robotic, unmanned and autonomous surface and aerial vehicles (drone and robots) for delivery and pickup of samples, life support equipment, organs and remote medicine interface.
