Senior Java Developer


Project outline:

Police officers, firefighters and paramedics are the first to respond to an accident or emergency – from a small-scale crisis to a devastating disaster. They are on the first line of response. Behind this line, there are scientists and engineers designing and testing tools to support these real-life superheroes. In this context, the EU-funded RESCUER project is developing a toolkit offering sense augmentation through enhanced sensorial input, precise and infrastructure less self-positioning, and cognitive support and multi-sense augmented reality interfaces, improving their focus and capability to utilize information and robust ad hoc intra-team communications for both verbal and data exchanges. Lightweight and non-obtrusive devices and sensors are used to boost human sensing and operational capabilities.

Project objective:

RESCUER aims to design and develop a First Responder-centered technology toolkit to empower the next generation of First Responders (FR). Adopting the “HERO” (enHanced nEw eRa first respOnder) concept, RESCUER will deliver a toolkit offering (1) sense augmentation through enhanced sensorial input, (2) precise and infrastructure-less self-positioning, (3) cognitive support and multi-sense AR interfaces, improving their focus and capability to utilize information and (4) robust ad-hoc intra-team communications for both verbal and data exchanges, all delivered over enhanced power and communication autonomy features. Extending the above capabilities, through the concept of a building black box, RESCUER will also introduce the capability of extracting the environment, during a disaster. The project will achieve these goals using lightweight, non-obtrusive, and natural interaction with devices and sensors that offer additional information layers augmenting human sensing and operational capabilities, rendering FRs better aware of their surrounding conditions and able to make fast and efficient decisions to remain safe in the line of duty. The goal of RESCUER is to introduce the next generation of FRs, who will be better protected, connected and situationally aware, with enhanced operational capacity and able to efficiently operate in infrastructure-less environments without power and communications network.
