Utah researchers looking at RF technology for LE and security applications

By Wendy Leonard
Deseret Morning News

Video may not have killed the radio star. Two University of Utah researchers have found a viable use for radio wavelengths that can see through walls and be used in places video cameras cannot. U. graduate student Joey Wilson and Neal Patwari, a professor in the department of electrical and computer engineering, have developed a technology that could help police nab intruders and help firefighters find victims in a burning home. It could even be used to help patrol the border.

"By showing the locations of people within a building during hostage situations, fires or other emergencies, radio tomography can help law enforcement and emergency responders to know where they should focus their attention," Wilson and Patwari wrote in one of two new studies on the method.
