Dynamic and Context Aware Reporting of Observations from the Field for Situation Assessment in Crisis Situation

Name of the provider (company name or main contact name), or FIRE IN ID ? Horndahl, Andreas; Gisslen, Linus

CCC addressed

Scope, rationale, context: general description. Precise here if this technology is currently use (eg. company name or contact info) An efficient process for gathering data from the field is crucial in managing crisis scenarios. In this paper we present a concept system for crisis management with focus on how observations from the field are reported using hand held devices and integrated into a common operational picture. The application used for reporting situation from the field adapts to the current situation in real time by adding and hiding input field based on what the user is reporting. Moreover, the user interface will also adapt to external information request. This is realized by utilizing risk event models for real time risk assessment and identification of areas where information is lacking which can generate new requests for information.
