Abstract

In this paper, we present research results carried out in EU funded project SGL for USaR (Second Generation Locator for Urban Search and Rescue Operations). The project aims to develop wireless standalone communication system with embedded sensor network, which is targeted to detect signs of life, locate victims in disaster areas and detect hazards. The system consists of REDS (Remote Early Detection System) wireless sensor network and FIRST portable first responder device integrating 5 different victim location methods.
