Abstract:

Oceanit proposes to develop a reliable, low-cost, easy-to-install, self-monitoring, and self-expanding wireless communication system to enable remote monitoring and tracking of sensors on emergency first responders in hostile environments. The heart of the system will use a Zigbee wireless mesh networking IC for low power and low cost communications. By using a wireless mesh network, low power wireless transceivers can be used because messages do not need to be transmitted directly to a central base station; rather, they can be routed around obstacles and other sources of interference. Our vision for this product is that it will become a standard requirement for emergency first responders. We intend the system to have an open interface so that new and existing sensors and devices can easily be designed to use the network. Our goal is to develop and market a practical product that will save lives.
