Polarix / Emergency Services - Drone to Escape

Polarix

POLARIX is a drone that helps people to escape in the event of fire or disaster. It is difficult for people to find the location of emergency exits because people get panic when disaster occurs unexpectedly. It can usually be used as CCTV or a fire detector, and when in emergency, it is operated as a drone. It navigates people to emergency exits by shooting the laser as well as warning of danger. In addition, POLARIX finds people who could not make themselves out of the building and reports their location to rescue workers in real time in order to help them to be rescued quickly.
