Net Guard, the Innovative Drone That Can Save Lives
The Net Guard drone can unfold in four areas, to stretch a safety net for people trapped in towers, or high altitude buildings or in case of fire. It’s a bit like a flying carpet.
The operation is simple: the automatic pilot drone receives a distress signal, then it uses its integrated GPS to locate the fire.
It then goes to the scene quickly, traveling at high altitude. Once there, the net unfolds in four, ready to save people from the fire building.
The net has integrated sensors and consists of a quadruple layer of polyurethane. It can perfectly position itself to receive the person in danger. It’s also strong enough to support the weight of an average adult. The net can also spend a long time in the air thanks to its static and rigid propellers.
For the moment this concept is purely virtual, because it was set up by Chinese design students at the Golden Pin Design Award, a competition rewarding the best design creations.
Hopefully, industrialists and engineers will develop this innovative concept as quickly as possible. It would save many lives around the world.
