WP7 Improving protection and capacity for individual first responders


The aim for this WP is to deliver a set of technologies to improve the situational awareness of the first responders and boost their capacity and effectiveness in the field. Overall, the delivered technologies will be designed in an ergonomic manner so as to not obstruct the first responders during their operations. Therefore, the focus will be on wearable technologies and hand gestures, as well as offering augmented vision and visualization of information in a natural, intuitive and unobstructed manner. The first responders will be accompanied by a personal mini-UxV to extend their vision capacity, which will be controlled in an exocentric manner via gestures. Further, edge processing will be deployed on their wearable/AR devices to allow for localisation and understanding of the scenes as well as communication with their accompanying K9 units.
