Abstract

In most recent years, technological advances have brought in consumer electronics many portable applications that have become part of our daily life. Miniaturized headphones, mp3 players are only an example of this trend. Leveraging on the low cost and versatility of these devices, some companies have launched new products combining the portability of these systems with the possibility of using these devices as support for some common human activities. In parallel with this technological and market evolution, awareness raised among public opinion about the need of contrasting accidents occurring to those people who work in harsh conditions and need to increase safety and possibly efficiency of intervention. This need is particularly enhanced for professional categories such as fire-fighters and Civil Protection rescuers.
