Tracking-aid / UVA for water rescue


Tracking-aid is a lifebelt-like unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that performs marine rescues in time. It can save an amount of time to rescue with the help of its intelligent automatic cruise function. Compared with other UAVs, the lifebelt-like UAV fills with nitrogen, which makes it become lighter and increase the battery cruise duration. What’s more, it can float on the water and bring the drowning person with its driving power to a safe place and escape from the death dilemma.
