Mountain accidents can become fatal if rescuers cannot find the mountaineers. According to the release, AIRescuer is a wearable device that combines the functions of a mini drone and a sports watch. The wearable has the functions of physiological data monitoring, a compass and GPS positioning that can detect the user's physical condition and help find direction duirng a mountain climbing trip.

When a mountain accident happens and telecommunication signals cannot be received or sent out due to the terrain, the user of AIRescuer can detach the mini drone from the wearable, make it fly vertically to a high and clear position, and send signals to an emergency response unit, the release said.

When the unit receives the signals, they can have an understanding of the mountaineer¡¦s physical condition and immediately send rescuers and equipment to where the mountaineer is located through GPS positioning, according to the release.
