Data Examples

LifeLocator TRx screen example showing a breathing victim at 7 m in depth and breathing at a high rate. The red line on the left screen panel indicates position of victim and the right screen panel shows breathing rate and depth of detection. The white line at the bottom of the data indicates presence of radio interference located at the site.


LifeLocator TRx screen example showing moving person (leg motion) at varying distances away from the sensor. Starting at 11 m moving in 1 m increments until 2 m away from the sensor. The white line at the bottom of the data indicates presence of radio interference located at the site.
