SenSuit – Intelligent Firemen Suit

Firefighters are essential and inevitable to public safety; saving others’ life by placing themselves in great danger. Elitac is develop­ing the SenSuit, a wearable device that enables a tactile communication between commander and firefighter making this hazardous work safer. Together with Fraunhofer Society, S-Gard and EagleScience, Elitac is working on a tracking and communication system that lets the commander localize firefighters in the building, and to communicate and coordinate them. The suit enables firefighters to sense this information continuously on their skin which ensures a decreased cognitive load and an increased situational awareness.
