Life Tube Drone
Life Tube Drone

This is a drone that can move both on the air and water to rescue a drowning person. To rescue a person on the water takes a lot of time becasue of the wave. The Life Tube Drone can approach a drowning person quickly because it is free from obstacles by moving on the air. When the drone finds the victim’s location through its sensor placed on the bottom, it descends toward the person. From a cross shape, it changes shape into a bar to make it easier for the person being rescued grab and hold on to it. After approaching the person, it float on the water and carries the person to a rescue team
