Group: Grant Helm, Stuart Mathews, Ming Shen for Fire Service
We have developed a training aid system that displays captured thermal imaging video and body statistics of trainee fire-fighters that are wearing breathing apparatus in the hot fire training room at Dunedin central fire station. The fire room is in blackout conditions and operates at temperatures up to 300 degrees Celsius - significant challenges for IT systems!
The system developed by the group is a combination of procured hardware and software with developed middleware. An application was developed for a debrief session that visually displays thermal conditions during the exercise.
