Meet EMILY: Your friendly water rescue robot


Today’s Video of the Day comes from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and features a look at a jet-powered water rescue robot known as EMILY (Emergency Integrated Lifesaving Lanyard).

EMILY is used by lifeguards and emergency response teams around the world to assist in dangerous water rescues.

Now, researchers from the National Science Foundation and Texas A&M are working to improve EMILY’s functionality and upgrade the system for larger-scale rescues.
