Positioning of Emergency Personnel

In critical situations, such as a major fire, it is essential that rescue teams can work quickly and efficiently so that lives are saved and the situation is rectified as quickly as possible. If, for example, the fire brigade is called to a major fire on a densely built-up area, it is sometimes difficult to orientate oneself quickly in dense smoke and unknown terrain and thus make the right decisions. In order to achieve a sufficiently accurate and reliable positioning on densely built-up areas, satellite technologies are usually not sufficient due to shadowing by buildings and streets. With its positioning features and the provision of correction data, 5G can improve positioning in the field and make the work of the emergency services easier.
