Scientists from VŠB - Technical University of Ostrava are developing a monitoring device for greater safety of firefighters and paramedics.
Monitoring system for measurement, archiving and online evaluation of temperatures affecting firefighters is still missing on the market.
"The SAM system – “Safety Ambient Monitor" is primarily intended for firefighters, mining rescue workers and possibly special army forces," says Professor Petr Novák from the Department of Robotics and adds: "We have designed a monitoring device that can measure the outside temperature impacting protective clothing, relative humidity and temperature under the protective clothing and other parameters to which rescuers are exposed. Such device is not on the market yet.”
