Whale rescue systerm
Whale rescue systerm

The whale rescue system is designed to rescue groups of stranded whales in a gentle way.We get the function inspiration of rescue ship from the way that human beings hold babies, and replace the rescue status quo of violent dragging with gentle hugging and towing.The system is also equipped with unmanned aerial vehicle to detect the vital signs of whales and participate in the rescue process, while moisturizing the first aid pile to water whales to prolong their survival time.The rescue system is not only responsible for rescuing whales, but also for studying the causes of whale strandings and solving the mystery.
