RELIABLE AND SMART CROWDSOURCING SOLUTION FOR EMERGENCY AND CRISIS MANAGEMENT- RESCUER
Year:2017
Research Areas
  • Electronic technology and of the communications
Information
Abstract
RESCUER aims at developing a smart and interoperable computer platform for using crowdsourcing information mashed up with open data to support emergency and crisis management. The RESCUER platform will be capable of 1) gathering crowdsourcing information in real-time by providing user interaction mechanisms especially developed to be used in emergency situations, 2) greatly improving situational awareness in a command centre in a timely manner, through novel multimedia data analysis methods and effective visualisation and manipulation mechanisms, and 3) semi-automatically providing official and accurate announcement of emergencies to the affected community and general public through an efficient approach for deriving specific documents from generic ones. Furthermore, RESCUER will support ad-hoc communication. Both European and Brazilian industries will benefit from the project results, several of which have the potential for becoming at least de facto standards. As industrial areas periodically simulate incidents for training purposes, the RESCUER platform can be experimentally validated before the Olympic Summer Games in 2016.
