Forest Keeper / Project

Forest Keeper
Forest Keeper

While hikers were missing, it's hard for them to send SOS signal in the mountain and to let the rescue units find their location. It wastes the rescuing time and decreases the hiker's survival opportunities.

Forest Keeper will set up above the forest or mountains. It observes the natural ecologic data to help the researchers to prevent nature disaster, such as wild fire, mudslide and climate problem.

Also, while hikers were lost, they can find the Forest Keeper and press the SOS button to send the distress signal to call for help. Rescue units can find their location by tracking down the Forest Keeper's GPS distress data.
