Wireless Location Tracking (NEEMO-TRACK)
Principal Investigators
Research Area:
Clinical medicine
Species Studied
Scientific Name: Homo sapiens Species: Human

Real-time tracking of crewmember location provides valuable data in case of contingencies requiring fast awareness by other crewmembers and ground support. Historical logging of crewmember location supports analyses for streamlining operations and habitat layout, as well as supporting synchronization of location with crew-worn environmental exposure sensors.

The objective of this experiment was to evaluate the performance, ease of setup, and ease of use of two crew location tracking systems that are based on two different sensor technologies, infrared (IR) and radio frequency (RF).
