ARIANNA in the winning team of the SMART@FIRE pre-procurement project for Firefighters

SMART@FIRE has been the most important pre-procurement project supported by the European Commission for new protective systems for Firefighters.

DUNE, member of the team participating to the SMART@FIRE competition (Applycon, Elitronic, Holik International, Vochoc, University of West Bohemia, Dune), was in charge of the tracking and localisation system. The final on-field test was held on Nov. 8, 2016 at Aix-en-Provence (FR) and the Evaluation Committee concluded that the system met the requirements of the PCP tender and that looked very near to commercialization.

ARIANNA ranked 1st at the MICROSOFT Indoor Localisation Competition in Vienna

The Microsoft Indoor Localisation Competition is a worldwide competition among the most advanced and performing technologies for localisation and tracking in GPS-denied environments.

DUNE participated to the 2016 edition, held in Vienna (Austria), in the 2D category with its ARIANNA system.

Despite the challenging competition ARIANNA was the most performing system, providing a 0.75 m RMS error over all the landmark points distributed in the test area.
