Abstract
Oceanit proposes to develop a low cost, reliable, wireless mesh networking system that will enable remote monitoring and tracking of sensors on emergency responders in hostile building environments. The heart of the system will use a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) wireless mesh networking IC platform 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 sent directly to a site commander, rather, they can be passed from node to node. Using this network, sensors can be used to monitor the vital signs of each and every emergency responder.
