Abstract

In Germany about eighteen fire fighters per year loose their lives, more than 16.000 accidents happen on duty every year. One of the main problems is the orientation inside complex buildings during operations especially if rooms are full of smoke. Route cards (printed on paper) to find fire detectors in buildings, are means, which often do not meet all requirements with regard to orientation. In case of an incident injured fire fighters have to be located and rescued. If they are apart the normal way, this can take long time. Especially, fire brigades of complex buildings like airports have to cope with a high number of fire alarms every day. Because of reconstruction work the orientation with route cards in these buildings is insufficient and very time consuming. The suggested approach improves orientation in complex buildings by use of indoor navigation and route calculation.
