Remote Controlled Beach Lifeguard

Issues: health, safety, mobility, public administration service

Solution: This Remote Controlled Beach Lifeguard is designed to assist beach lifeguards in their task of beach and water surveillance. It was positioned on a patrol tower and stands higher than the beach crowd to get a clear overview of the area. When employed, it flies overhead for ground patrol and serves as co-rescue equipment when swimmers, surfers, and other water sports participants are in danger. This charging patrol tower can also be installed on the back of the lifeguard’s pick-up truck. It can recharge itself at the patrol tower, as well as by solar power. When hazard happens, the lifeguard and the remote-controlled assistant will make their way to the victim’s location, and the assistant serves as a surfboard. The lifeguard can control the board to pull the victim back to the coast.

Stakeholders involved: Technology companies, Beach Police, Beach users

  1. Investors raise funds to develop the technology
  2. Manufactures make mass production
  3. Contract with beach police department to deploy this product
