The second pilot of the FASTER project took place on 27th January in Moncalieri (near Turin, Italy), in an area affected by floods in 2016. The pilot was organised by the Civil Protection of Piedmont region and tools developed by INOV were demonstrated.
The three tools involved in this flood pilot, which received positive evaluation by the users, were:
- Local meteorological station
- Mesh Communications network by UAV
- Sommunications server with IoT devices
The FASTER project aims to develop tools to support rescuers in catastrophes. The aim is to improve performance and raise awareness among rescuers about the environment around them, as well as inform decision makers about the situation at the intervention site. The tools work in an integrated ecosystem that includes a local and remote control centre and several sensors for collecting relevant data. The tools developed are demonstrated in pilots that cover situations of earthquakes, floods and terrorist attacks on buildings.
