The R-Autonom 112 is an intelligent rescue system for passenger boats which operates fully autonomously. It is designed as a secondary rescue system which supplements primary systems such as lifeboats and life rafts and helps transport drowning people away from the hazardous proximity of sinking ships in good time. For this purpose, a transmitter in a wristband worn by the person in need of rescue transmits their location. The R-Autonom 112 makes its way independently to the person in distress, keeping them afloat and transporting them to a life raft. The compact system can be stored in large quantities on board a ship.
