Drone in Rescue Missions

Drone in Rescue Missions

Researchers from the Robotics and Perception Group at the University of Zurich and the Laboratory of Intelligent Systems at EPFL created a new foldable drone.

Inspired by birds that fold their wings, the new drone can squeeze itself to pass through gaps. After an earthquake or during a fire the new drone could look for people trapped inside and guide the rescue team towards them.
