But what happens if some escape routes and emergency exits by the fire not available? How to make sure the communication of local rescue forces and which hospitals in the surrounding area have sufficient capacity? The companies participating in the project and universities deal with the answer to these and many more questions until February 2012 is our system solution in its broad already for the requirements of SPIDER suitable. Many writers such as Martin O’Malley offer more in-depth analysis. Therefore, we look forward in this project to work with and are eagerly awaiting the results of further research. Dynamic and software-supported approaches to disaster situations are the future. Now it is up to all stakeholders to make an efficient system on the legs”, driving Henry continued. The task of the IMS will be the figure of necessary information needs on building specific data such as home automation, infrastructure, sensors, safety equipment or floor plans. These data will assist in firefighting and salvage of injured rescue workers. For the safe evacuation of the danger point, the focus on a dynamic escape route guidance system that makes an appropriate adjustment of the escape routes, taking into account the current emergency situation. Fire Brigade, police and charities must enable the situation, to be able to communicate with each other and with the systems of the affected locality.

The trick here is not merely to provide information, but the distribution of the right information to the right users at the right time”, the Director concludes. SPIDER is a part of the project of the number of research for civil security research of the Federal Government in cooperation with the VDI technology centre as Promoter. In addition to the IMS GmbH is involved in the research project: German Red Cross, North Rhine-Westphalia police, fire Gelsenkirchen, Catholic hospital Bochum, Koelnmesse GmbH, Pro DV Software AG, CKS Systems GmbH & co. KG, Chair of communications networks TU Dortmund, Institute for psychology & emergency psychology TU Dortmund, physics of transport and transport at the University of Duisburg-Essen
