What we do

Improve Healthcare Logistics and Access

Modern medicine can be incredibly effective, but unfortunately the logistical networks that support healthcare and ensure easy access are often overlooked.

Over 3B people globally live in rural areas where healthcare services are limited or highly inaccessible. Aerlift’s delivery systems and logistics management technology enable governments to provide life-saving healthcare services to some of the hardest-to-reach populations around the world.

In urban settings, Aerlift’s logistics services help hospitals and their supply chains operate more efficiently. Elevated oversight of inventory helps reduce waste while mitigating risks of shortages, yielding cost savings and improved care at the patient level.

For many developing nations, the vast majority of the population is served by community-level healthcare centres. These centers are oftentimes highly disconnected from larger healthcare hubs and efficient transportation infrastructure.

Who we are

The Aerlift Team balances a wide variety of backgrounds and skill sets – combining technical engineering expertise with experience in public healthcare intervention. Our technical team stems from the aerospace sector with multiple pending patents. Our implementation team has spent years working alongside international governments developing digital health platforms.

Together with our humanitarian, corporate, and government partners, Aerlift is extending the reach of healthcare through technical and social innovation.

Title

Drone Robotics and Automation

Description

The intern will work on digitizing our drone platform. Aerlift is developing custom delivery drones and we are flight testing early prototypes. The drones must acquire and deliver payloads with a high degree of automation. As such a large part of the drone design is the payload delivery system involving mechanical actuation and embedded system software development. The intern will help develop these robotic functions to automate the process of loading and unloading the drone. The job will require skills in coding for embedded systems as well as familiarity with digital design software such as CAD and FEA packages. At the same time it is also a flexible and open-ended project in many ways with lots of room for creative freedom and exploration of new ideas that may be initiated by the intern. Applications should have some background in automation and robotics. Additionally, interest in drones is a plus.

Duties

  • Developing software and hardware elements and robotic payload delivery
  • Aiding in the design, testing, and developer of drone avionics systems
  • Using computer designs and simulation software to develop robotics elements for the drone’s payload delivery system

Skills

  • Programming and testing embedded systems
  • Designing automated robotic systems from hardware and software perspective
  • Familiarity with digital manufacturing and design tools

Education Required

Robotics / Mechatronics / Mechanical / Electrical Engineering
