Sixth Sense Technology Joins The Mountain Rescue Teams Speeding Up The Search And Rescue Process

Ok, this one of the most interesting design concepts i have written about. The device comes with as a solution to a common problem that climbers and hikers get into. They get stranded on mountains every year, never to be found or found in serious conditions. I love mountains too, and i know that many of us go hiking like taking a walk in the park and they sometimes don’t mind the always changing weather and get lost. And the search and rescue teams need a great amount of time to find the missing persons, so most of the times they are never to be found or found too late.

This device is a great helping hand for the rescuers. The developed product is a portable gesture based computer that uses sixth sense technology developed by MIT Pranav Mistry. Rescue personnel carry a small front pack containing all of their essential equipment, including a walkie-talkie, a compass and maps. The front backpack holds everything a search and rescue volunteer needs at a moments notice. While replacing traditional items such as GPS maps, compass and field notebook, the device has additional advantages. These features include a gesture controlled LED lighting, parabolic microphones for the detection of distant muffled sounds and infrared sensors to locate the missing persons trapped under snow. By replacing much of the items in the pack, weight is lost, thus increasing team communication, organization and speed. Speed and good organization are the key to find the missing ones in time and especially in one piece.

This device clearly shows that technology is saving lives, with the integrated GPS maps and the gesture based interface, the rescuers find it much easier to organize, split in teams and communicate with each other when the moment comes.
