A collaborative methodology for understanding technology landscapes
During the summer of 2016 the RNLI embarked on a Technology Roadmapping exercise with the support of the Institute for Manufacturing’s Education and Consultancy Services (IfM ECS) and the assistance of third parties to help explore the future of search and rescue communications and ‘calling for help’ on, in...
Part of project FIRST - report in Swedish
This is a thesis project made in collaboration between Chalmers University of Technology and the Swedish Sea Rescue Society with the aim of developing a better method of connecting life rafts in preparation for lifting.
Development of a product that helps the user climb back into the boat.
If a person falls overboard one can find it very hard to climb back. This combined with the fact that small boats has more often a lack of rescue equipment, our goal with this project is to develop a self rescue product. It will help the person to climb...
Ett kylsystem för torrdräkter
Svenska Sjöräddningssällskapet använder idag en överlevnadsdräkt bestående av en torrdräkt och någon form av isolering. Dräkterna är gjorda för att hålla en person levande i kallt vatten upp till en timme varför de ofta är för varma för att ha på sig i andra situationer. Detta projekt genomförs för...
An electronic tow rope
How might we make the Rescuerunner follow a bigger rescue boat automatically, on a safe distance?
Keeping our future unmanned planes on high allert.
To develop a system of remotely operated UAV:s – as described in the “Providence” project – we would have to design a remotely controlled launching mechanism housed in a protective box.
How might we connect a lifting wire to a liftable life raft at sea without having persons on the water doing it?
Lifting life rafts — with people in them — to the safety onboard a nearby ship, would be a very fast way to rescue people after a mass evacuation at sea. But if the helping ship has to launch a rescue boat to connect the rafts, that means putting...
