Nokia is well known in the world as a manufacturer of non-standard products, like a touch screen of ice, created in 2010. At the annual Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona, the company presented an unusual product for itself – the clever “CHASE Life Tech FR jacket for policemen and rescuers”, developed in conjunction with the South Korean fashion company Kolon.
Externally, CHASE Life Tech FR looks like bright jackets , which are usually the police and firefighters. The main difference lies in its electronic filling. The jacket is equipped with modular sensors that fix the heart rate and body temperature, GPS and accelerometer. But this is only what is presented at the exhibition. Instead of these sensors it is possible to install other ones, which are necessary in a particular situation – for example, carbon monoxide sensors.
The “removed” data from the jacket is transmitted to the base station, where the control unit analyzes them in real time. This, in particular, can help in the event of a failure of a police officer or a firefighter to communicate in an emergency situation. The developers of CHASE assure that its operational resource is practically unlimited.
CHASE Life Tech FR is distinguished by an exquisite design, in no way inferior to the generally recognized world fashion brands. However, all these spectacular details of the jacket, in addition to the designer ones, also fulfill quite definite practical functions. For example, fabric is a conductor, while reflective 3M parts made from GORE-TEX material easily pass steam from the body, but do not let rain and snow pass. Since all sensors are removable, the CHASE Life Tech FR can be easily washed.
Since the jacket, despite the electronic stuffing, looks great, Nokia and Kolon have plans to create a maximum for one and a half years of its “civilian” version.js.src = “&version=v2.8”; 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));
