Network Tube / Maritime Disaster Rescue Suppl

Network Tube
Network Tube

In time of the occurrence of a maritime accident, there are more missing people than the survivors and the dead and searching for the people is difficult. One of the main reasons of the occurrence of missing is that the people are scattered by the tide. On account of this problem, hypothermia, fear and being less conspicuous by a rescue party, their survival rate drops suddenly.
According to the concept, each tube combines using GPS technology and the principle of a magnet.
Tubes are designed to gather victims together and attract each other with built in GPS robot module and magnets.
