Danish invention will save lives in the event of hotel fires

A new type of detected based on infrared technology can, in the event of hotel fires, let the emergency services know which rooms contain unconscious people.

That is one of the questions faced by the emergency services when they attend a hotel fire. Often, there will be people who have not left their room because they either have not heard the alarm, they are unconscious or they are panic-stricken.

Therefore, a new Danish invention will help the emergency services by providing information about the rooms in which there still are people.
