Localization of Emergency First Responders Using UWB/GNSS with Cloud -based Augmentation

  • 1. Bitgear


We propose a real-time system for indoor/outdoor localization of first responders in emergency situations based on networking of wearable devices and cloud-based GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) augmentation. We present outdoor tests that validate this concept. With good network geometry, accuracy of the indoor positioning is similar to the accuracy commonly achieved outdoors by GNSS.
