Firefly Lifebuoy

In the event of a shipwreck, a life buoy is the only guarantee for the lives of the victims. People can only get outside assistance if they get a lifebuoy. But when the shipwreck happened late at night, it was difficult for rescue workers to find the victims. And large search rescue area, poor lighting conditions, so the difficulty of rescue will double. Firefly lifebuoy is a kind of life buoy that can release fluorescent liquid at night, it can form a fluorescent band on the sea surface and accurately locate the victims along the fluorescent band, greatly increased the chances of survival of the victims.
