Pars Rescue Lifeguard Robots to Save The Day
Posted: April 3, 2013 by Maja Johnson
The year is 2013 and we are still waiting for the hovering skateboards and time machines that Marty McFly used in the popular "Back to the Future" movies. Our lives may be different from what directors believed would be back then, but we can surely say they are not quite that far off.
We may not have flying machines and time traveling YET, however we do have robots and we are just starting to perfect them in all ways possible. The newest addition to the robot family comes from the RTS Lab in Iran, where the engineers have developed PARS – a specialized rescue robot that will save people from the dangers of the deep seas.
Pars, the seafaring Savior Arial Robot, is designed to rescue people that are left adrift at sea; people who have swam further than they have planned to; people who are in danger in general. The robot is able to fly in order to reach possible victims and provide instant help from drowning, for example drop a life saver.
With its artificial intelligence, heat sensor camera, sound and image processors and many other advanced smart sensor technologies, Pars can detect people who are in danger close and far from the coast, day and night. Its sound and sensor technology, equipped with LED lights enables this robot to be seen by the victims as it is approaching them and detect them as they shout at the robot for their rescue. It is believed that the artificial intelligence of Pars will automatically respond to the screams and provide a rescue – drop a life saver into the water. The robot is also equipped with a GPS device and can return to the coast without any guidance.
Although Pars is not available yet and is still being developed, we are really enthusiastic about its revealing to the world of technology and the real-life world of life guards.
