iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2018

In the event of an earthquake, communication facilities in the area would be seriously damaged, and people would not be able to be in contact with the outside world in a timely manner, which would cause great inconvenience to the rescue efforts. The concept was designed to use unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) technology to build a temporary emergency network quickly that could be used to promote safe and efficient rescue operations before the communication system was repaired in the earthquake zone.

The use of UAVs in earthquakes or any other natural disaster zones is worth exploring and this concept highlights a real need.
