The transportation issue is an uncommon kind of direct programming issue where the goal is to limit the cost of distributing a product from various sources or starting points to various goals. In light of its extraordinary structure, the standard simplex technique is not reasonable for taking care of transportation issues. These problems require innovative solution using advanced technology. In case of medical emergencies in remote locations and in hill stations, mobility of medical equipment in shorter time is a challenge. With the existing battery-powered Quadcopters, they have limitations with the payload handling capacity, as well as with their endurance limit. In this work, we will be addressing both mobility problem and the endurance problem using internal combustion engine-powered Quadcopters.
