ABSTRACT

RFID-Assisted Localization & Communication for First Responders [website]   [open html - 35KB]

"The RFID-Assisted Localization and Communication for First Responders project will determine the feasibility of using RFID-assisted localization in combination with an ad-hoc wireless communication network to provide reliable tracking of first responders in stressed indoor RF environments, where GPS-based localization and links to external communication systems are known to be unreliable. The research will also consider the means and potential for embedding critical building/occupant information in specific on-site RFID tags to enhance the safety and efficiency of the first responders' mission as well as to minimize dependence upon communication with external building databases."
