Transcript

  • 1. Coordinating Urban Search and Rescue Alissa Feldman, Sonia Franckel, Eugenia Gabrielova, Kelly Knight, Dan Krol, Francesca Slade
  • 2. Current Practices for Search and Rescue are Inefficient
      • No global picture of which houses have been searched
      • Global coordination is difficult, if not impossible
      • Data is written down and then manually brought back to a centralized site
      • Can result in a two day delay between searching the house to sending rescuers
    •  
  • 3. Buildings are Evaluated and Recorded Locally
  • 4. Mobile Data Collection Makes Coordination Efficient
      • See what areas have been searched and what areas need to be searched
      • Coordinate search efforts with rescue efforts so people get attention as soon as we find them
  • 5. Collecting Visual Data at the Site
      • Find the site for later rescue efforts
      • Visual data for evaluating the site
    •  
  • 6. Preview Pictures
  • 7. GPS Located Data
      • Record contains geo located data
      • Multiple pictures of the site
      • Notes about the condition
      • Uses only GPS data which does not require wireless access
    •  
  • 8. Record includes Priority Status
      • Not currently recorded
      • Color coded levels indicating risk:
        • Red - urgent
        • Yellow - delayed
        • Green - low priority
        • Black - fatalities
      • Can show areas on global map view to highlight areas of significant risk
    •  
  • 9. Data Transmission Waits for an Internet Connection
      • Disasters frequently reduce communication channels so access to network cannot be assumed
      • Maintains a local copy of all data even after upload
      • Uploads whenever wireless becomes available
    •  
  • 10. Significance
      • Adds reporting ability where none is currently available
      • Easily deployed - relies on common technologies and builds upon existing processes
      • Increases coordination and thus efficiency of rescue efforts  
      • Improves speed of rescue which is can often mean life or death
  • 11. Onwards
      • The application already has the basic functionality needed to be useful to USAR.
      • For future maintenance and features, code is published on Google Project Hosting and is deployed on Google AppEngine.
