Cities, towns, communities, and regions are responding to a growing number of natural and human-made disasters (floods, fires, tsunamis, oil spills, terror attacks, etc.) with little preparation, mitigation, and advance notice; this leads to far greater instances of human loss, injury, and damage to infrastructure, property, and the environment.
Goals and Objectives
Prevention of loss of life, injury, damage to property and infrastructure; minimizing financial loss; and faster recovery
IoT sensors, big data analytics solutions, mobile-enabled apps, and cloud
Use Case Summary
Early warning systems allow city administrators and emergency management personnel, to detect and respond, as early as possible, to a natural or man-made disaster. This helps city officials alert residents, halt critical infrastructure to minimize impact, reroute traffic, and deploy resources as quickly as possible.
