The wearable solutions of the INGENIOUS Next Generation Integrated Toolkit (NGIT) will be presented at the webinar titled “Sensors and Smart Wearables for First Responders” which will take place online on November 2nd 2021 between 10:00 and 12:30 CET. The event is the second in a series of open Webinars organised by our DRS Cluster project RESPOND-A, addressing new technologies for first responders.
Developing emergency response technologies for detecting and managing waterborne pathogen contamination events
During emergency response operations, first responders are at risk of being exposed to dangerous pathogens (such as norovirus, e. coli and v. cholerae) through skin contact, ingestion or inhalation. These pathogens pose a significant risk of illness, disease or even death. Currently, there are very few available field-validated technologies to assist first responders when having to operate within an environment with such dangerous pathogens.
ASSISTANCE proposes a holistic solution capable of offering different configuration modes for providing the tailored information outcome needed by each FR organization. With this solution, ASSISTANCE will enhance the FRs SA during their mitigation activities through the integration of new paradigms, tools and technologies (e.g. drones/robots equipped with different sensors, robust communications capabilities, etc.) with the main objective of increasing both their protection and their efficiency.
