The project “Drones, eCall and Cyber Physical Systems for Public Safety Answering Points 112 (CPS-PSAP112)” aims to incorporate and accelerate introduction of new technologies, such as eCall, IoT and UAV or drones, in a safe and controlled manner, from the perspective of a 112 emergency center.
It makes use of SOFIA2 platform for 112 emergency centers. It includes development and integration of new external information interfaces such as drones and the eCall systems, aiming to add new services to accident and crisis management.
This way, SOFIA2 platform is ready for the European market’s new requirements and regulations for emergency centers or Public Safety Answering Points (PSAP 112). It explores SOFIA2 platform’s adaptability to develop new search and rescue (SAR) protocols, at both European and national levels, to support the fieldwork of human teams, allow for decision making and improve real-time synchronization between the Emergency Operation Center and the immediate response teams.
Drone sending, as an added value, and on-terrain image capture to send them in real time to the platform, allow for the immediate assessment of the situation, optimizing the use of emergency services and allowing them to adapt to the different crisis scenarios.
CPS-PSAP112 has been developed with the collaboration of Answare Technologies and CENTIC (Centro Tecnológico de las Tecnologías de la Información y las Comunicaciones, promoted by the government of Murcia). It has been funded within the European Horizon 2020 project CPSELabs, which is a member of the European initiative Smart Anything Everywhere (SAE). CPS-PSAP112 was chosen by the Commission as the best of 23 projects developed in CPSELabs, due to its impact in society.
