Frontline Gloves for firefighters are networked gloves that allow two firefighters to use hand gestures to communicate with each other. They enable firemen to quickly scope a zero-visibility space by means of direct visual feedback about obstacles and clearances. The gloves allow them to send instructions to the teammate by means of simple hand gestures. This reduces the need for spoken communication, saving the firemen precious air that would be used up in talking, and overcomes challenges of radio such as cross-talk.
