The European project REFIRE has come to a successful conclusion with the demonstration of the simple ed affordable system developed for the indoor location of rescuers.
Based on a combination of inertial platforms and RFID technology, the project (under the coordination of IES Solutions) proved the feasibility of a system able to locate a rescuer inside a building with the accuracy of a few meters, without any drift or performance degradation caused by walked distance and time.
This video shows the system performances as perceived by the rescue operations co-ordinator.
This scientific paper reports on the system features and technical background.
On 18th Dec 2013, a final workshop took place in Roma at the CAMPUS Bio-medico University; results and potentials were presented and discussed.
