Use of drones for Emergency management

Project description

Reducing risks for firefighters by using UAV swarms

Firefighters provide an important emergency service in a dangerous job that comes with many risks. One of the biggest of these uncertainties is the state of buildings and locations that firefighters need to enter and operate in. Another is the position of the victims. This uncertainty has led to globally increasing fatality rates among firefighters. The principal investigator has previously patented a system for indoor tracking using radio frequency systems, fixed nodes (anchors) and wearable nodes for locating victims after disasters. The EU-funded IDEAL DRONE project aims to use this patent, alongside unmanned aerial vehicle swarms equipped with sensors and anchors for indoor localisation.
