PARTNER’S ROLE IN THE Nightingale PROJECT

In NIGHTINGALE, Deveryware focuses on the development of a platform which improves coordination between first responders, volunteers and public safety answering point (PSAP), based on the user requirements and Deveryware’s GHALE platform (PEMEA compliant (ETSI TS 103 478) interoperability services). In leading this task, Deveryware works on creating interoperability protocols for sharing emergency information, which is useful for first responders in a specific area.

The task aims at improving coordination between the emergency services, volunteers, and PSAPs by upgrading communication technology. To overcome eventual PSAP overload, a situation awareness component is being developed within the project. It is capable to process multimedia data streams, present the overall emergency situation, and identify critical individual requests, using fused texts and image processing based on natural language processing, machine learning and proprietary algorithms.

Deveryware also contributes to other technical tasks, including integration testing, validation and user familiarisation with the developed tools.
