BS-LIFEBOAT

In recent years, it is general in developing countries, that, the improvement in urban sewerage system lags behind the development of city. City waterlogging often happens in those regions, and occasionally in developed countries due to extreme weather. Victims move painfully in high water, they need leave immediately. BS-LIFEBOAT is designed for dealing with this problem. It is an automatic rescue system making use of bus stop all over in city. Water will pour into the scale plate. When water level reaches 1 meter, natant disk will touch the trigger inside. The inflation equipment will dilate the boat. Then, victims can use them to escape.
