Zack Braun and Tyler Sisk invented FireHUD, a device to help keep firefighters safe. The heads-up-display system attaches to a firefighter’s mask and measures heart rate, respiratory rate, blood oxygen level, the firefighter’s body temperature, and the external temperature. This information will help firefighters determine if they are overexerting themselves and putting their health at risk.The invention won first place in Georgia Tech’s InVenture Prize. The team represents the Institute in the ACC InVenture Prize, which involves inventors from each university in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
