SALVEREMO – Automatic localization system for dispersed people in mountain remote areas

SALVEREMO is an applied research project aimed at developing an innovative system for mountain search and rescue of people lost in rugged and mountainous terrain or in rural areas. The rescue operations are based on the use of small UAV, equipped with devices and sensors, answering the needs of all the emergency chain players, from the civil protection, to the mountaing rescue department.

SALVEREMO boosts different vertical competences in order to dramatically reduce the search times of lostpeople in areas where morphological features are critical. It provides the civil protection players with decision support, chances to reduce workload and operational costs.

Thanks to the sensors and TLC component miniaturization on board as UAV payload and to the autonomous action capability in inaccessible areas, the SALVEREMO system increases the rescue operation efficiency.

The project partners are BEA SRL (Capofila), aerRobotix, commitWORLD, CSP, Politecnico di Torino. SALVEREMO is funded through EU-Regional Funds, within MESAP, the Piemonte Innovation Pole on mechatronics and advanced production system.
