Misja Instytutu jest dzialalnosc naukowo-badawcza prowadzona do nowych rozwiazan technicznych i organizacyjnych uzytecznych w ksztaltowaniu warunkÃ³w pracy zgodnych z zasadami bezpieczenstwa pracy i ergonomii oraz ustalenie podstaw naukowych do wlasciwego ukierunkowania polityki spoleczno-ekonomicznej panstwa w tym zakresie.
The objective of WP3 is to develop and integrate sensor modules for measuring and monitoring crucial parameters of working environment of the end-users (i.e. fire fighters, chemical and mine rescuer). The most important environmental parameters for the safety of those rescuers are external temperature, concentration level of oxygen (O2) as well as concentration level of dangerous gases: CO, CO2, CH4, Cl2, H2S, NH3.
Activities within this WP will include the analysis of the state-of-the-art sensors available on the market, research on adjustment/calibration of selected sensors in order to improve their functionality in emergency conditions (detection limits, response time), and initial development of technology for their integration with PPE elements (e.g. garments textiles or harness of respiratory protective equipment - Self Contained Breathing Apparatus SCBA). Suitable technologies assuring integration of sensors into textiles will be developed and dedicated prototypes of three types of garments will be manufactured. The activities within WP3 will also include a preliminary study on communication between developed sensor modules with communication unit to be developed within WP4.
Task 3.1. State-of-the-art analysis and selection of sensing devices
