Flood is harmful disaster. It not only flooded houses, but also caused a lot of casualties. Many people drowned because of the rapidity of the current and the inability to swim. How to reduce casualties is the focus of our thinking. Once someone falls into the water, the drone can respond quickly and go downstream to search him. When the target is found, the liferaft is released. The drone returned after confirming the safety of the personnel. The liferaft has a GPS positioning system, which is convenient for rescuers to search and locate. The drone can save many people at a time, which greatly improves the rescue efficiency.
