Frontline gloves – Tech Testing

leave a comment »

Critical technological components for demonstrating the value of the Frontline gloves concept were 1. the proximity sensor for sensing distances in smoky/darr/low visibility environments, and 2. basic communication between firefighters made possible by gesture recognition, using bend sensing technology. Putting together quick and dirty prototypes of these two components helped us test their viability early. Here are a couple of videos of the tests.
