Uav lifeboat


The operation of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) can replace the traditional rescue method and complete positioning during the water rescue. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) with polyethylene rings will arrive in front of the target so as to let the drowning person catch the ring quickly and save them from drowning. Then, the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) will take them back to shore.

A drone as a lifeguard is very innovative. In addition, rescue swimmers no longer have to risk their own lives. The concept has a high practicability and has a high degree of elaboration.
I am a university student who loves industrial design and likes innovation. I am also cheerful and lively.
