Project description

The ultimate goal of this project is to create a single system able to coordinate multiple heterogeneous agents (land robots, boats, rotatory wings, people) to help in disaster response and mitigation. Pró-Alertas also proposes a citywide simulation environment to test responses and planning under different disaster scenarios and flooding forecast and alert system which harvest crowdsourcing, social, and IoT data.

  • Goal 1: software system to coordinate multiple heterogeneous agents;
  • Goal 2: an integrated simulation environment to test and evaluate different strategies under diferent disaster scenarios;
  • Goal 3: flooding forecast and alert system for urban areas;
  • Goal 4: test the integrated environment in real life application with heterogeneous agents.
