One of the problems with tall urban buildings is providing assistance to those inside if emergency strikes, so the conceptual 'NET GUARD' drone is positioned as an effective solution that could help save lives.
The unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) works by being prompted into action and flying using four powerful propellers towards the building where help is needed. The drone will then deploy a safety net to aid those inside with getting out through the windows if other exits points are blocked or unaccessible.
The conceptual 'NET GUARD' drone is the design work of Liu Xiang, Diao Hao-Ming, Li Hao-Hu, Zhu Nan-Tong, Li Guo-Yu and Hu Zhen-Yuan of the Guangdong Polytechnic University. It is also the winner of the 2018 Golden Pin Concept Design Award.
