RC Buoy / Water rescue tool

Discipline: Professional Concept

When people get exhausted in the water or are unable to swim, a life buoy may be out of reach or it may be too far for lifeguards to throw it to swimmers. RC Buoy provides water rescue with more possibilities and changes desperate situations.
Rescuers can control the life buoy’s direction and speed easily with a radio-controller. The whole RC Buoy set is solar-powered. It not only expands the scope of water rescue greatly but it also makes water rescue much more precise and rapid than in the past.
