The Winning Entry of the 5th IDRC Davos 2014 Photo Contest

Members of Kimse Yok Mu’s Disaster Response Team ASYA are using a search and rescue cam (SearchCam) which enables them (after locating victims under wreckage) to determine whether there are other (injured) people and to obtain information about the (health) situation of the victims and their environment. It enables them also to communicate (through a two-way microphone system) with the victims if they are conscious. The system works integrated with an additional bluetooth screen that can be used by another SAR member. So as a result of these interactions the SAR Team can analyze the situation and take the right steps to rescue the victims.
