This Autonomous 5G Drone Was Designed For Backcountry Search & Rescue

While more of the world than ever has now been “civilized,” there are still huge swaths of isolated land without a soul for miles and miles. For intrepid adventurers, that means an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. For forestry officials and emergency response teams, however, that can mean huge hurdles to jump in the case of search and rescue operations. However, those kinds of situations can be mitigated far simpler with the aid of the AIDM Autonomous UAV drone concept you see here.

With an array of onboard cameras, sensors, and AI tech, this clever unmanned 5G-connected smart flyer was designed specifically to patrol mountains, forests, and other areas to monitor for disasters, lost hikers, people that have gotten into accidents, and the like. And it can manage that with less money spent and less environmental impact than, say, a full-blown rescue operation or even a helicopter search. It can even accurately 3D-map the terrain to better help responders traverse the landscape. It’s only a concept right now, but this technology could truly be a game-changer in the years to come.
