Smart Explorer / Drones

Smart Explorer
Smart Explorer

Smart Explorer is a new fire rescue drone that can replace firefighters into the scene of the fire search and rescue, greatly reducing the firefighters casualties. In the fire rescue, firefighters no longer need to enter the dangerous indoor to work, just operate the UAV to achieve rescue. Combining an oxygen mask and a shield, this drone uses infrared detection to search for people who trapped in a fire room during 360-degree exploration. Trapped personnel just pull down the bottom of the UAV oxygen mask, the UAV will pop up a shield to cover trapped people at this time.
