WiFi 3D Imaging for Emergencies

Behind the walls…


Businessinsider.com highlighted a developing technology that allows one to be able to see through walls in a 3D environment using WiFi as sonar-type medium. I mentioned this in a previous post. I thought about what uses that could come from this ability. Immdiately emergency response assistance came to my mind. Being able to locate people in a building can be huge in a shooter situation. Mix in RF-ID badging technology and you could locate your employees and locate those who are not carrying tags (possible shooters). It’s technology like this that we should embrace as a way to solve real-life issues and not necessarily a problem with privacy. With great power comes great responsibility. I’ll continue to explore uses of Wifi imaging in future posts.
