Wearable GPS tracker
This device is implemented by using the embedded Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) module in the smartphone. The main role of the GPS Tracker is to provide the location of the first responders in the field into the main SnR Platform platform, in order to empower the situation awareness of the Field Commander.
Wearable Strain Sensors
The device has the capability to detect uni-axial deformations in both directions. In fact, upwards and downwards bending lead to an increase or decrease of the sensor output current, thus allowing the system to discriminate what sort of deformation has been exerted on the sensor. In particular, within the project, such flexible sensors have been inserted into the fabric and can be sewn onto different parts of clothes to allow the monitoring of different joints. These data are also transferred to the main SnR Platform, in order to enhance the situation awareness in the field.
Wearable ECG, EMG
Wearable Electrocardiogram (ECG) and Electromyogram (EMG) will be provided with easy-to-use, fast-to-wear sensorized garments by UNICA. Their main role in the SnR project is to monitor the biomedical parameters of the first responders in the field. These data are also transferred to the main SnR Platform, in order to enhance the situation awareness in the field
