The EMILY boats wowed first responders (lifesavers, water police, Navy, maritime industry) with it’s speed, responsiveness and ability to save people in distress in any conditions without putting rescuers in harms way.
The US Ambassador to Australia John Berry said “I’ve enjoyed learning about new cutting-edge products and tools that will improve health & safety. Today I got a sneak peek at one such invention with applications for first responders, earth scientists, defense forces, and maritime safety authorities – a ROBOT LIFEGUARD!”
The boats were also on display at Pacific 2015, the international maritime exposition in Sydney, on the 6th-8th of October.
