Drone rescue system. PULSOS - IRS Project

Drone by Drone has participated in the development of PULSOS- IRS (Immediate Rescue System) project.

The project involved the development of a early or immediately rescue system early by drones for swimmers in distress on the coast or on the beaches.

A project that can be launched for safety of bathers and users of our extensive coastline.

Activation of the system is produced by the bracelet that feature an emergency button for activating the alert by the swimmer when is in trouble. Activating the alert means the arrival of immediate feedback to the rescuer and to the drone, which is constantly alert. The drone takes off immediately and automatically, and goes autonomously to the place of emergency geolocated for the bracelet bearing the bather, and delivers a float as an element of early redemption before assistance arrives by the rescuer.

The PULSOS - IRS system is a Rescue Project by drones that comes to support surveillance and rescue work carried out on the coast of the Basque Country and in Spain, which may be applicable to the rest of Europe. According to the World Health Organization, it is estimated that some 372,000 people died by drowning in 2012 worldwide. This figure makes it the third leading cause of death from unintentional injury.

Spain is a coastal country with almost 8,000 km of coastline. And it is one of the major focuses of tourist attraction in Europe. The large number of people every year who come to our shores has become them in potential risk cores.

PULSES - IRS is a project developed by the Group D of the Master GECEM taught by the Department of Business Administration of the University of the Basque Country / EHU and presented in its nineteenth edition in 2014-2015.
