Project Summary

“Heart in Hand” provides a reliable system to monitor first responders' health and safety in real-time. ​The system allows to collect heart rate of the first responder and surrounding environment data such as heat, humidity, air pressure, and gas reading.​ The system also allows to notify the first responder when they are in a bad situation. The system is using multiple wireless network communications to improve the flexibility and LoRa technology has been implemented for back-up communication which improves the reliability for the system.
