Sep 17, 2009

The KIRAS research project Emergency Mission Control Center (EMC²) has ended successfully. The project's aim was to research on information technology support for fire fighting crews that allows for effective cooperation, information discovery and sharing. A prototype application has been built and was tested successfully in a simulated emergency scenario in a motorway tunnel near Wels, Upper Austria. The project partners were ROSENBAUER International AG, FH OÖ Forschungs & Entwicklungs GmbH, mobilkom austria AG, Österreichischer Bundesfeuerwehrverband and SIEMENS IT Solutions and Services GmbH. Project leader at the FH OÖ was Stefan Wagner. The project was funded by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG). The prototype and live streams from the simulated emergency scenario were presented in a big event at Rosenbauer's headquarters in Leonding, Austria.
