Koalambulance / Rescue Drone

Koalambulance

Koalambulance is a drone designed to rescue koalas trapped in forest fire. Considering koalas’ habits of holding trees to reduce body temperature, Koalambulance is equipped with built-in water cooling system to ensure that the fuselage is consistently at a low temperature. The shape of Koalambulance is designed to imitate the tree trunk, which is familiar among koalas and convenient for them to hold tightly. Koalambulance's four propellers ensure its power to fly at high altitudes. With its built-in GPS positioning and tracking function, Koalambulance can promptly rush to the fire field to rescue koalas and send them to safe areas.
