Worcester Polytechnic Institute to host national forum on locating first responders inside buildings

3 million in awards from the U.S. Department of Justice, a WPI research team has been developing precision personnel location and tracking technology that employs principles from orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM), which transmits high-speed data via wired and wireless channels and integrates well into the radio spectrum, and super-resolution techniques as used in synthetic aperture radar (SAR), which can extract great detail from radar signals.

The system will employ transmitters worn by first responders and receivers located on emergency vehicles. The goal is an affordable system that requires no setup at the fire scene and that can precisely track up to 100 first responders in three dimensions, displaying their positions and paths on a screen at the incident command center. The technology will be demonstrated during the Aug. 6-7 workshop.
