In the chaos left behind after an earthquake or a tsunami, every minute counts. Rescue workers often lack the information needed to determine where help is needed most - whether to search for survivors, or deliver supplies and rescue equipment to the worst hit areas.
The RescUAV project will use Canadian-made Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to fly over disaster areas, helping aid workers to better visualize the extent of damage and to decide which areas should be prioritized for immediate search and rescue efforts. These aerial views will help emergency responders to see the terrain they are heading into and help them get help to where it’s needed most.
