A hardware and software solution to assist first responders.

The innovation involves firefighters “land marking” their route with breadcrumbs to effectively leave a trail to follow on the way out, similar to the approach taken in the fairytale story of "Hansel & Gretel".

These smart breadcrumbs can then be leveraged to form an ‘ad hoc mesh network’ to provide critical information to the Incident Commander located externally. The mesh network can be utilised in several ways.

This Includes:

  • Proximity location of the firefighters for situational awareness
  • Wearable sensors on the firefighters
  • Fixed sensors within the breadcrumbs
  • Backup communications
