As wildfires devastate multiple regions along the West Coast, Teledyne FLIR thermal imaging is being used to give firefighters an advantage when battling a blaze.

Teledyne FLIR Thermal Security Cameras Help Firefighters Monitor Wildfires in California

In the recently launched ROMATRIS project, the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) and the Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW) want to develop robots that can follow emergency forces through rough terrain while transporting payloads, such as heavy equipment.

Helpers On The Rubble Field: DFKI And THW Develop Robots For Material Transport In Rough Terrain

First responders know that the first few minutes are critical when responding to a drowning incident—the longer the victim is in the water, the less chance there is of recovering them alive.

Design Student Incorporates Teledyne FLIR Thermal Imaging into Concept for Search & Rescue Device

Every year, wildfires in California present a huge threat to ecosystems, property, and human lives. Managing these wildfires is a difficult and dangerous task, especially because of the unpredictability of fires and the poor visibility caused by smoke.

Students at TU Eindhoven developed the world's first interactive drone that can transmit emotions.

Blue Jay unveils drone that evacuates elderly in case of fire in nursing homes

The FLIR MUVE™C360 is a multi-gas detector that integrates with an unmanned aerial system (UAS) or other platform to provide real-time continuous monitoring for a variety of applications

FLIR MUVE C360 Protects First Responders From a Wide Range of Hazards

Firefighting is a race against time. Exactly how much time? For firefighters, that part is often unclear. Building fires can turn from bad to deadly in an instant, and the warning signs are frequently difficult to discern amid the mayhem of an inferno.

How AI Could Alert Firefighters of Imminent Danger

In this episode, we talk about how DeepMind’s AlphaFold algorithm solved protein folding, NASA JPL’s partnership with the Department of Homeland Security to better protect firefighters, and a trial for autonomous shuttles in DTU that can change the transportation infrastructure of the whole country

Podcast: AlphaFold Solves Protein Folding, NASA Protects Firefighters, Autonomous Shuttles Debut In Denmark

A unique positioning technology is being developed to pinpoint firefighters inside buildings where other positioning technologies fail.

POINTER: Seeing Through Walls to Help Locate Firefighters

Thermal imaging cameras (TICs) aren't new to the fire service. Whether you're remembering that expensive first camera that seemed to outweigh your SCBA or today's more affordable pistol-grip TICs, you know what they're capable of.

Situational or Tactical: Which TIC Do You Need?

In the event of a forest fire, flash flooding or a landslide, how can firefighters and rescue workers get to the disaster site as quickly as possible? What measures need to be taken? What lessons can be learned from past disasters?

Digital platform helps rescue services during natural disasters

Finding a hiker lost in the woods is a challenging mission—if the person is lost in densely forested terrain, then sunlight is largely blocked by trees and other vegetation, and the ground reflects very little light.

Researchers Develop Search and Rescue Technology That Sees Through Forest with Thermal Imaging

Dolphin 1 is a revolutionary remote-controlled lifesaving buoy from Ocean Alpha. This company provides unmanned surface vehicles to government and commercial entities with 92 USV related pacts spanning 25 products ranging from 1 to 50 meters in length.
