'EMILY' is a robot lifeguard, and a force to be reckoned with, as it has the ability to streak to a swimmer in need faster than any human. The robot lifeguard was created by Hydronalix and the final design is supposed to be an autonomous machine that scans the sea in search of any signs of trouble.

The robot lifeguard 'EMILY' uses sonar to detect any swimmers, then is able to swim directly to the person in danger.It can actually swim 28 mph, which is faster than any human can swim! But, EMILY wasn't designed to replace lifeguards, but merely help swimmers until human aid can physically arrive.
