DRONE SENSING FOR SEARCH AND RESCUE IN THE WILD
Search and rescue operations in challenging environments demand efficient and robust technologies for detecting vital signs of individuals. Drone sensing system can enable a fast response, searching and monitoring individuals using remote sensing capabilities, and providing valuable information for advanced emergency management. Our solution is to propose a novel remote vital sign detection drone system using mmWave radar technology. By leveraging the unique capabilities of mmWave radar, our drone system aims to provide accurate and resilient vital sign information especially in adverse conditions, such as low visibility or cluttered wild environments. The proposed methodology also demonstrates promising results in simulated search and rescue scenarios, indicating its potential for real-world deployment.
