AbstractThe purpose of this paper is to explain the process to implementing a wireless sensor network in order to improve situational awareness in a dense urban environment. Utilizing a system of wireless nodes with Global Positioning System (GPS) and heart rate sensors, a system was created that was able to give both position and general health conditions. By linking the nodes in a mesh network line of sight barriers were overcome to allow for operation even in an environment full of obstruction.
