Smart helmet and wearable exoskeleton robot introduced for emergency personnel

A smart helmet equipped with sensors, a camera and communication devices will be combined with a wearable exoskeleton robot to help emergency personnel put out fires and rescue people stranded deep in the mountains. Rescuers can communicate and share information using the smart helmet in real time.


In a showcase on July 7 at an arboretum, about 100 kilometers (62 miles) south of Seoul, the Korea Forest Service (KFS), a governing body, unveiled a smart safety helmet and a wearable exoskeleton robot that would help emergency workers effectively carry out operations in the mountains. Prototypes will be deployed in October this year.


The smart helmet can relay live video feeds of emergency sites while creating a network. The wearable exoskeleton robot worn on legs helps rescuers maintain their posture while slowing down the rate of their stamina loss.
