OCR System / Rescue product

OCR System
OCR System

Flooding is the number one severe weather killer. When people are trapped in flooding or mountain, people often fail to cross obstacles (such as floods, canyons, etc.) efficiently, which reduce rescue efficiency and even increasing the risk of death.
The concept of OCR System is to build a bridge over the obstacles so as to assist rescue task. A rope bridge is formed to transport trapped persons. It is designed to help rescuers carry out rescue missions more efficiently and safely, and to protect the lives of both rescuer and the trapped persons.
