Approach & Solution
Specifically, the project will introduce Augmented Reality technologies for improved situational awareness and early risk identification, and Mobile and Wearable technologies for better mission management and information delivery to First Responders.
Body and Gesture-based User Interfaces will be employed to enable new capabilities while reducing equipment clutter, offering unprecedented ergonomics. Moreover, FASTER will provide a platform of Autonomous Vehicles aiming to collect valuable information from the disaster scene prior to operations, extend situational awareness and offer physical response capabilities to First Responders.
The whole system will be facilitated by tools for Resilient Communications Support featuring opportunistic relay services, emergency communication devices, and 5G-enabled communication capabilities.
Engineering leads the scientific coordination and technical management of the project. It is responsible of the FASTER System Architecture, component specifications and the development of innovative tools for building the situational awareness. In particular, Engineering provides a “just in time” feed model to avoid information overload, allowing the knowledge to be interpreted by software and to be processed in real time in order to provide information.
Engineering is also responsible of the design and development of the FASTER portable visualisation tools which enable end-users to understand critical information at a glance. The project has received co-funding from H2020 - DRS02-2018 the European Union's Horizon 2020 programme - Contract No. 833507
