The INGENIOUS coordinator, the Institute of Communication and Computer Systems (ICCS) will organise the PSCE Conference in Lavrion, Greece on 10-11 May 2023 in collaboration with the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) and the Public Safety Communication Europe (PSCE).
The Small Scale Test #13 (SST #13) of the INGENIOUS project tested and evaluated the INGENIOUS K9 vest (ICCS) during the search of victims in damaged buildings which are too dangerous for entering for the first responders.
Both man-made and natural disasters such as earthquakes and terrorist attacks can result in people being trapped under debris and collapsed structures. In these critical situations, a timely and effective response is crucial and can prevent or significantly reduce the number of casualties. This is why First responders and rescue teams need to be equipped with cutting edge tools and specialised instrumentations in order to enhance their capabilities, namely in terms of accuracy, quick localization, and reduction of false alarms.
