Dec.16 — According to the World Health Organization, as many as 2 billion people on the planet don’t have access to essential medicines because they live in places that don’t have a reliable road system. Matternet is testing the use of a UAV to transport medical tests and blood samples from remote villages to labs. But its application goes well beyond health care. Recently the company partnered up with Mercedes-Benz to create a van that launches delivery drones. Bloomberg TV’s Anthony Lacavera speaks to its co-founder and CEO Andreas Raptapoulos.
