SAVER Project: Indoor Position and Location Tracking in Three Dimensions

During an incident, accurate location is critical information. Emergency call centers need the location of victims to dispatch the response, and incident commanders need to know where responders are to coordinate activities and monitor their safety in evolving situations. In urban settings with high-rise and subterranean locations, the vertical or z-axis location is particularly important. Accurate indoor location tracking can save lives, but it presents many challenges.
