Confined space personal safety monitor

The Elizabethtown InvenTeam will invent the Personal Safety System (PSS), a pair of devices for personal safety monitoring and emergency signaling. The PSS will assist industrial workers who work in confined spaces. One device will be worn on worker clothing to measure environmental signals and send alert signals. The second device will measure physiological signals. The devices will communicate via Bluetooth.
