  1. 1. EMERGENCY DEMONSTRATOR bart.adams@luciad.com
  2. 2. EMERGENCY DEMONSTRATOR LEADER Partners involved in demonstrator 2
  3. 3. EMERGENCY DISPATCHING CURRENT PRACTICE Centralized system • Amount of information can be overwhelming • Difficult to make right decisions Text and audio communication • Not integrated • Difficult when many actors involved • Limited situational awareness Supported by paper documents • Information often outdated • No real-time updates 3
  4. 4. EMERGENCY DISPATCHING THE FUTURE WITH ASTUTE Pro-active decision support • • Aid commanders, superiors,... by providing suggestions for actions Show relevant data only Multi-modal communication • Integrated audio, video, voice, haptic, messaging, map annotations,… Adaptive map-centric HMI • • Embedded on-sleeve, in-vehicle, etc. Updated in real-time with tracking feeds, annotations,... All based on user state and context
  5. 5. ASTUTE BENEFITS Pro-activeness: Pro-actively compute best approach given weather forecast and presence of dangerous goods Decision support: Aid commander by assigning most appropriate team members to task Multi-modal HMI: Choose between visual, haptic, audio alerts based on severity Adaptive HMI: Switch to audio-only firefighter HMI when visibility lost due to smoke Seamless connectivity: All actors maintain situational picture through embedded, mobile, and remote HMIs 5
  6. 6. USER CENTRIC APPROACH Field Studies Realistic Scenario, Storyboarding Timeline, Personas, Relationships Mental Model Task Analysis, Information Needs Requirements Architecture, HMI Designs Prototype Implementation Usability Tests

  11. 11. PROTOTYPE IMPLEMENTATION Commander Tablet-size HMI Firefighters On-sleeve HMI Server inside firetruck Crisis team Web-based HMI 11
  12. 12. USABILITY TESTS 3 days testing by Belgian firefighters and commanders • 8 firefighters (Merksplas, Hasselt, Ninove) • 7 commanders (Dendermonde, Genk, Merksplas, Hasselt, Ninove) Example tests • Commander: find location of dangerous goods • Firefighter: perform search-and-rescue operation 12
  13. 13. TEST RESULTS Positive Feedback • Plans and realtime information are great • I like tablet applications for crisis management • Looks to be very applicable and to be integrated with other research projects • I would certainly buy this • This would be a great help in exploring unknown buildings • ... Concerns • Can make firefighter negligent • More information should be provided pro-actively • ...

  16. 16. TECHNICAL CHALLENGES TACKLED • High performance visualization and interaction  Resource-constrained mobile devices • Reasoning on fast changing context using ontologies  Many events (e.g., position updates)  Separate asynchronous engines (e.g., routing) • Data preparation and packaging  Efficient file format  OGC GeoPackage • Offline/online operation • Seamless connectivity  Messaging protocol  OGC GeoPackage 16
  17. 17. OGC GEOPACKAGE • Upcoming standardized format for geospatial data  Vector data (streets, buildings) and raster data (aerial imagery)  Based on sqlite • Improved interoperability, ideal for mobile • Active involvement in SWG by Luciad from within Astute  Open source draft implementation available  https://bitbucket.org/luciad/libgpkg 17
  18. 18. CONCLUDING NOTES Current work practice in emergency domain is suboptimal • Logical next step is to provide digital documents on tablet Astute emergency demonstrator looks beyond next step • Field operations through multi-modal and adaptive HMIs • Proactive support taking user state and context into account Applicable to other domains involving field operations Relation to other projects • Smart@Fire: Next generation firefighter suit • FireBee: Indoor localization for emergency situations 18
