Icarus Rescue UAV

In the case of fire or other accidents, there are often people falling from high. The most commonly used aid at the moment is to arrange large air cushions to protect and carry falling people. If the drop point is high, such as the height above 20 layers, the rate of success is low. This new lifesaving product integrates UAV technology, lifesaving cushion and parachute technology together, which can greatly increase the success rate of the rescue. The UAV with compressed air cushion and parachute is hovering near a possible falling person. The air cushion was activated can catch the man at the moment of falling.
