A solution for life-saving situational awareness, from Endeavour 2017.
Dhanuka Nanayakkara and his team (Hanson Wong and Conor Langan) collaborated with both the Metropolitan Fire Brigade and consultants Solution 49x at KPMG to develop a real-time locating solution called Live Emergency Personnel Tracking (LEPT).
Life-saving tracking technology
The system is designed to track firefighters and other deployed personnel during emergency situations, such as bushfires or structural fires. The system provides a real-time view of active personnel and help improve coordination during an emergency.
We received significant positive feedback from the University and faculty after Endeavour, and we plan on exploring our commercialisation options during the summer. Dhanuka Nanayakkara
