A student created a drone that searches for and rescues drowning people

The new development differs from the previous prototypes. Previously used drones are too expensive and

the rescue equipment is too bulky. It cannot be easily loaded onto the back of a rescue ATV or vehicle, much less transported on foot.

Dominic Leatherland, who qualifiedrescuer on the water wanted to develop a smaller and more portable system that could be deployed much faster without special skills. Timing is of the essence when someone in the water is in danger.

This is how he created SERVITA - a small compacta drone that flies over dangerous waters. It locates people in distress. When found, it deploys a flotation aid. It inflates automatically when hitting the water, helping victims stay afloat while waiting for a rescue team.

The proposed design uses technologies such as GPS, a live camera, and two servos that allow the pilot to control the angle of the camera.
