Abstract

This project designs and develops a device capable of assisting rescue workers with visualizing a room with hazards and limited visibility. The project focuses on the development of a device capable of creating a simple two-dimensional image of the room using an array of ultrasonic sensors. The final prototype of this device is capable of measuring distances inside a room and sending this data wirelessly to a separate device, which generates the map and displays it to the user.
