Autonomous Search And Rescue (SAR) UAVs are currently under development here at UAV-EA. Our Aim is to produce a UAV that will automatically search a building for casualties using IR cameras and position sensors. Once found, the UAV will transmit the position back to the operator, even showing a map of the shortest route to the casualty.
This will allow buildings to be searched quickly and to minimise the time that rescue personnel need to spend in a dangerous environment.
The UAV can also be fitted with microphones and speakers allowing the operator to communicate with anyone trapped. We believe that such development will greatly improve safety for rescue personnel and aid in rapid evacuation of casualties, thus saving lives.
