Emergency Integrated Lifesaving Lanyard

Every day around the island of Lesvos the Greek Coast Guard must rescue boats that have capsized, run out of fuel, or simply broken down. Which is why the Coast Guard invited a team from Texas AAmpere (amp), SI unit of electrical current&M University’sSecond Center for Robot-Assisted Search and Rescue to launch a pilot project for a very special robot: Emily, the Emergency Integrated Lifesaving Lanyard. [1]

Emily is a 4-ftFoot long remote controlled buoy that can cruise through rip-currents and swift water at speeds up to 22 mphMiles per hour to reach distressed swimmers faster than human lifeguards.
