Life Sensor / Rescue Equipment

Life Sensor

In fire, it is hard for people to seek help because of blocked path or far from windows, thus firefighters are unable to ensure the accurate position of survivals, which leads to serious casualties. LIFESENSOR is an intelligent system based on Internet of Things, offering the information of survival’s precise position and rescue route. It is made of fire proofing ceramic with the melting point of 1750℃, installed on the edge of ceiling. In 1000㎡, the indicator can locate people’s position by Doppler echo and transmit signals to the screens of fire masks.
