The Turnout Gear from Viking you see here is the marriage of ThermalSensor Technology (TST) and Smart Textiles, whereby firefighters willdefinitely find this smart uniform a boon to their everyday work. Thissuit is smart enough to visually communicate any critical hot spots onthe suit itself so that the fireman will have greater situationalawareness and not put himself in danger of burns. The LED display onthe upper left shoulder glows to notify others whenever one might be indanger, while the sleeveâs LED lets you know if your mate is in a hotspot. The higher the mercury goes, the faster the LED will blink.
