Abstract

Fire-fighters or commonly called as fireman are people who have been specially trained in fighting fires and rescuing people from hazardous and dangerous situations in order to prevent loss of lives and properties. Working as a fireman is known to be very dangerous and challenging. In foreign countries, countless number of firemen died on the scene while performing their job. These on-duty deaths can be overcome by providing all firemen with better equipments, tools and gears to perform their job without sacrificing their own lives. Prolonged suffering or experiencing extremely high temperatures, cardiac emergency, fluid loss, and stress are the major contributing factors to fireman fatality. The purpose of this project is to develop a new physiology monitoring prototype where a fireman’s vital signs like body temperature, heart pulse and body position can be remotely monitored and detected over a safe distance reliably using XBee wireless tool. Three major sensors which are temperature sensor, pulse sensor and accelerometer with gyroscope sensor will be integrated together in one printed circuit board (PCB). This printed circuit board (PCB) is kept inside a specially customized casing that will be strapped onto the upper body of the fireman. All inputs received from all three sensors will be sent wirelessly to an online system to monitor the health condition of every on-duty fireman in an emergency incident in real time.
