Pathfinder / drone


In the earthquake and other natural disasters, the safety of the rescuers also threatened, because after the disaster of the terrain is very complex, and rescuers have limited vision, it is difficult to distinguish the correct way or the danger area.
Pathfinder is designed for rescuers. It uses laser radar, lens and some sensors to modeling and analysis of 3D from the overhead of disaster area, and transmit relevant information to smart glasses worn by rescuers. To enable them to master the terrain and dangerous areas in the disaster, and to plan the rescue route, help the rescuers to carry out the rescue operation safely and efficiently.
