Smart to be Safe

On the Catwalk

An example of where this smart technology can go are a new generation of hazard suits that are equipped with sensors that keep an eye on your position and measure your vital signals, such as temperature and heart beat. Applications would be for teams of people who brave disaster areas. The information from the suits can be sent via a wireless link to a central control where the health of the rescuers can be monitored. The information can also be passed to other people in the team and combined with useful bits of data such as maps or weather reports, to ensure the team have the best chance to work together effectively, efficiently and safely.
