Aerial device could help 1-1-2 service
The Canary 1-1-2 emergency service could soon have a new weapon to help in the fight against forest fires and locating missing people.
Two students have develo-ped a prototype of “an unmanned aerial vehicle” which would allow the transmission of pictures of real-life emergencies.
Diana Rodríguez and Omayra del Pino Díaz are both students with the School of Industrial and Civil Engineering and had assistance from radio-controlled model clubs. Their “UAV” would be capable of vertical take-off and landing. It would also incorporate infrared so it could detect the presence of people.
