Robot Lifeguard

Robotic Lifeguard To Begin Patrolling US Beaches.

Popular Science (6/25, Calderin) reported, “This summer, EMILY (for EMergency Integrated Lifesaving lanYard) began patrolling Malibu’s dangerous Zuma Beach and will watch over about 25 more by December.” The autonomous robot, which is capable of achieving 28 mph in the water, uses sonar to “scan for the underwater movements associated with swimmers in distress.” It also has a “camera and speakers [to] let an onshore lifeguard calm the person and instruct him to wait for human help or to hold on as EMILY ferries him back.”
