Wirelessly COVID-19 Patient Tracking and Risk Assessment Using Edge AI Platform

The ability of the health system to manage a massive influx of patients is based on the combination of four factors: the personnel, the equipment, the physical spaces and the system in place. A combination better known in jargon as the 4 "S" (staff, stuff, structure / space, system). A fifth factor that is often misunderstood is synchronicity.

An IoT Platform for Disaster Response

This project aims to develop a novel information-technology platform to improve the effectiveness of emergency response in disaster areas, ultimately saving lives. In case of any emergency response, the local communication infrastructure cannot be generally relied upon: therefore, we propose a distributed, self-organizing information system based on off-the-shelf mobile devices, supported by self-organizing, self-deploying UAVs.

Optimizing inter-device interaction in Drone-Aided Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks (DA-MANET) for Humanitarian Mission deployment

Every year, people suffer the consequences natural disasters descend upon them. When these unfortunate events occur, emergency response teams are deployed and need to deal with a multitude of challenges. In this scenario, the communication infrastructure is a key element that can contribute to the success of the mission. Considering the case of a Drone-Aided Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (DA-MANET), where devices such as drones and cell phones are available, it is imperative to investigate how their interaction must occur in a way to optimize the humanitarian mission.

Design of an Interface for the Intuitive Control of a Unmanned Air Vehicle fleet in Emergency Situations

The project consist of developing a novel interface to control a fleet of quadcopters in an emergency situation. The interactive system will have to interpret the user intent in such a way that minimum cognitive resources are required. Humanitas products target non experts in robotics whom need to maximize their concentration on medical support and logistic, thus they require an intuitive and not monopolizing control interface. It will also be required that feedback information can be sent to the user without using the visual feedback of their application control screen.
