Abstract:

When a disaster occurs, activities like search, rescue, recovery, and cleanup are carried out by emergency responders. This paper proposes a new framework for supporting the safety and health of emergency responders by locating their position and monitoring their vital signs using a Wireless Wearable Device. As an initial step towards the development of a wireless wearable tracking and monitoring system for emergency responders, this system uses an iterative localization based scheme, which provides the exact position of each emergency responder, and monitors their vital signs like skin temperature and pulse rate. Any change in the vital signs can be easily sensed and tracked, and could be used to provide warnings when critical events are detected. The system could be used to send early warning alerts and for communication between emergency responders. © 2012 ACM.
