RLD-Ball / Life detecting equipment

RLD-Ball

RLD-BALL is a kind of disaster-relief device to help searchers detect the exact location of the trapped. When there are disasters such as earthquake and debris flow, the trapped was buried in the ruins and the globate RLD-BALL can scroll quickly in the disaster areas whose terrain are complex to confirm the approximate region that there are signs of life. After confirming the buried position with an error range less than one meter radius, RLD-BALL will change its operating mode to measure the depth of the trapped. At the same time, it will provide these data to rescuers in time. RLD-BALL brings the hope of surviving for the trapped.
