||This article describes an "intelligent" fireman's jacket whose textile fabric includes gas detectors powered by rechargeable batteries. The jacket includes a radio transmitter and a GPS positioning system that enables the real-time detection of wearers at all times and the transmission of their body temperature and pulse rate. A micro-camera incorporated into the fabric at chest level allows images to be sent to the control centre. Other options and applications are possible, in particular in the chemical industry. This project received an award in France and is approved at the European level.
