The rescue buoy help monitor people swimming at big beaches. It assists lifeguards as it can be challenging for them to detect people in need of help in time. When a person is in need of help, time is of the essence. The life guard can detect an emergency, but it can be very hard to keep track of the location once he/she is on the out in the water to find the person in need of help. The Rescue Buoy can detect an emergency situation by analyzing movement patterns on people in the water. If it suspects an emergency, it can, after video feed is sent to and confirmed as an emergency by the lifeguard, move to the location so that the person in need of help can hold on to it. After that it stays still to serve as a marker for the life guards. It does not move with a person on it. The buoy can work in a team of buoys to monitor the full width of a beach. Furthermore it is equipped with the Shark shield technology that provides an electro magnetic field around the buoy at a frequency that sharks are sensitive to and seek to avoid. In that way it creates a safe zone around the buoy in case of sharks approaching the beach. The buoy stays charged with a wave energy generator from which it can detach should there be an rescue situation. Winner of the BraunPrize 2005 Read Less
