Extreme Innovation: Detachable cabins to rescue people during plane crashes
New Delhi: Engineers have designed a new life-saving prototype for planes to save passenger's life during an emergency.
The innovation, from Russian inventor Tatarenko Vladimir Nikolaevich, suggests that future aircrafts be designed with a detachable cabin which can prove as a life-saving technique during emergencies for people travelling through aeroplanes.
Nikolaevich's prototype, which took three years to be developed, has parachutes attached to its roof and rubber tubes filled with air on the bottom of its cabin as the safety mechanism.
At the time of an emergency or a mishap with the plane, the parachutes attached to the cabin will automatically open once the lower capsule gets separated from the aircraft.
The prototype also includes storage space designed to hold the luggage during the emergency landing of the cabin.
The capsule will be released within seconds of an emergency situation. Two gunpowder engines will take control to slow it down once it gets ejected from the plane. This will be followed by the parachute popping out for safe landing of the cabin.
According to Tatarenko, this invention could prove to be a crucial life-saving technique in the coming future.
