Firefighters are often exposed to extreme conditions during operations. Orientation is particularly difficult when there is a lot of smoke inside buildings, which means that the firefighters can be separated from each other. CELIDON's primary goal is to prevent critical compressed air breathing apparatus accidents and other accident situations in several scenarios through appropriate training, and to create a way of more efficient training by locating separated - or injured - firefighters and making them "visible" to the rescue teams. This is achieved by developing an innovative system for localizing firefighters in environments with low visibility based on ultra-wideband (UWB) communication and augmented reality (AR) technology.

Project duration: 01.03.2019 - 28.02.2021

The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research under grant number 13N15011.
