Marine Search & Rescue Jul 02, 2020
Background & Demands
According to Global Report on Drowning released by World Health Organization, 372,000 drown due to accidents each year, and more than 40 people are killed because of drowning every single hour. In China, minors who drown are accounted for 95%. However, water rescue robot R1 - equipped at the beaches, along the rivers and lakes, or in reservoirs - can rapidly go and rescue those who drown under either remote control operation or manual operation. In addition, R1 is applied to solar charging system where it can be automatically charged, realizing lower cost and higher efficiency at work for rescuers.

Solution Applications & Advantages

1 Beach Security
When a drowning situation is found far or near the beach, the lifeguard can immediately throw R1 into the sea and start, with remote operation, to rescue the drowning person at a speed of 7m/s to quickly reach the victim. And, it saves the time spent preparing equipment and summoning lifeguards to help them out. It can be operated individually, saving human costs and improving efficiency.
Scenic Spots Area Management
Scenic spots with rivers, lakes and ponds are usually incredible and attract many tourists to come and visit, but hidden dangers may exist when the number of tourists increases. Water rescue robots can be equipped at those places and can be launched by being thrown into the water area  to rescue them. Setting off the rescue robots can also calm people down, as the robot is going to save the victims, to prevent tourists ashore from being panic to avoid other accidents.
Water Area patrol
Water patrol usually requires more than two staff and various equipment, and the manpower and equipment maintenance costs over the years are relatively high. Water rescue robot R1 can be equipped with GOPRO and supports APP route planning to search for victims by going to  destinations. It can quickly videotape on-site suspicious waters, analyze afterwards, and then take actions based on your decisions. After the patrol is completed, the solar charging system can be used for automatic charging to ensure sufficient power before the next patrol mission.
Maritime shipping
In shipping, container ships, wharf boats and other shipping vehicles may be flooded with busy cargo transportation, yet danger might hide within such busy daily works, for example, someone might fall into the sea because of slippery floor during rainy day and no one knows. However, water rescue robot R1 can be equipped with speaker while patrolling and remind staff during operations that they should pay attention to not falling down to the water. Even so, it would be so quick enough to start rescuing.


Water Rescue Robot
Water Rescue Robot R1 is applied to water search and rescue, fire fighting, towing, aid shipping and such. It adopts remote and manual operations. It is equipped with chip
based on unmanned driving control, changes routes with smart support, and has IR Human Body Detection, One-key Auto Return, Signal-losing Return, Reverse and so on.
It is the standard rescue equipment suitable for government emergency and private aid groups, in scenes like sea, reservoir, river, lake and so on. It’s also the equipment

with a standard of marine, which meets the military’s needs of systematic functions customization during specific rescue missions

With dual charging modes for internal charging and external charging

Provide fast battery replacement function with battery replacement time≦30s

With human body detection module, if the person who falls into the water leaves the robot, R1 will automatically stop sliding and will wait for the person who falls into the water to grab the R1 again

Solar Charging System

The solar energy is collected through the battery panels, and then the photoelectric conversion is carried out through the solar inverter controlled machine to give the

drone or rescue robot power, which brings convenience, low cost, and environmental protection advantages.
