Traditional ways of mountain rescue involve helicopters and groups of rescuers, which have several problems: 1. Hard to locate the victims. 2. Rugged mountains with many trees make it hard for a helicopter to find a proper platform to land on. 3. Each rescue consumes a lot of manpower and material resources.
