Wearable technology to guide rescuers across woody vastness

11 Apr '22
Young innovators from the Perm Polytechnic University in the West Urals have come up with a prototype wearable that is expected to help find stray wanderers in deep forests.

The developers believe the gadget will step up the efficiency of search and rescue operations compared to conventional methods in which foot rescuers comb through barely penetrable woodlands with little hope of spotting a trace, or airborne teams can hardly see anything through a ceiling of tree tops.

The device is reported to look like a key pendant that, once on, starts sending out distress calls in the FM broadcast band.
