What new technologies or search methods can be developed to identify life trapped under collapsed structures?
The process of mapping a disaster area and locating life is the most time consuming part of the search-and-rescue process. As you learned from the research materials, time is a critical factor, and if an injured person can receive treatment within the Golden Hour, they have a higher rate of survival. Currently, PJs rely heavily on canines for locating life, but animals have several limitations. This collaboration is an open brainstorm of ideas for locating life in confined spaces as quickly and efficiently as possible. At this stage, all ideas are viable—high tech, low tech, software, robotic, even biological. Post your ideas as a written description, a sketch, schematic and/or video. If you discover any existing tech or solutions online, please include the link. Think big. Think very small. Think unconventional. Your idea could save lives.
