The AVAnav: Avalanche Rescue Helmet-Mounted Display is a wearable interface prototype for search and rescue personnel designed to reduce the time needed to locate buried avalanche victims. It is a fully functioning helmet-mounted display that aims to promote heads-up and hands-free searches, thus enabling rescuers to move across rough and uneven terrain while utilizing ski poles and other hand rescue tools like shovels and probes.
