A Drone that Sees Through Walls

For Search and Rescue Incidents Source:  University of Leeds WideSee Systems This is new technology that's designed to be life-saving.  It's a flying drone equipped to see inside buildings with walls as thick as 1/2 meter of concrete.  An example of where this new search and rescue drone can work is at a high rise apartment building on fire or a corporate structure collapsed by an earthquake.  The WideSee drone mounted scanner can fly around the perimeter of buildings and spot people trapped and in need of rescue inside. New Technology Developed by 3 Global Universities. This system doesn't use traditional heat seeking cameras that often are compromised by flames. It uses an adaptation on the commercially available LoRa wireless radio wave system. The radio signals transmitted by the drone can spot people trapped in buildings with very thick concrete walls.  What is additionally so compelling beyond the new breakthrough technology is the global engineering colla
